The Small House at Allington

The Small House at Allington by Anthony Trollope
By: (1815-1882)

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel by Anthony Trollope. The characters were well-developed and the plot was engaging from start to finish. The Small House at Allington provided a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the residents of a small English village, and I found myself getting emotionally invested in their relationships and struggles. Trollope's writing style is both detailed and eloquent, making it easy to immerse oneself in the story. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a captivating and thought-provoking read.

Book Description:
Fifth novel in the Barsetshire series, The Small House at Allington is largely focused on the Small House's inhabitants, Mrs. Dale and her two marriageable daughters, Lily and Bell. The two girls, of course, have suitors: their cousin, Bernard Dale, his friend Adolphus Crosbie, and the local boy, Johnny Eames, whose career in London is to mark him as far more than the "hobbledehoy" that he has earlier been considered. Crosbie is a social climber, and his connection with the dysfunctional de Courcys of Barsetshire give the author a chance for a splendid portrayal of an aristocratic family in decline. As with many of AT's novels, there are subplots as well, and many pictures of rural life standing in contrast to that of London. Some critics have seen in the portrayal of Johnny Eames something of an autobiographical exercise on Trollope's part.
