Trollope, Anthony: Orley Farm, v.1, 17 Jan 2008.
A novel of 1862.
From an anonymous amazon reviewer:
“Orley Farm is one of Trollope's best "stand alone" novels, i.e., not one of the Barsetshire or Palliser series. It tells the story of a woman accused of forging a will to give her son the property of Orley Farm. Lady Mason, the accused forger, stands among Trollope's best conceived characters; headstrong, capable of independent thought, yet feminine and essentially obedient to social convention, she rivals Jane Eyre for a character revealing an author's originality and insightfulness. There is also a host of entertaining minor characters: the bullying Newgate lawyer Chaffanbrass; the conniving Sophia Furnival; the comical commercial salesmen Moulder and Kantwise; etc., etc. And the dignified Sir Peregrine Orme, in his devotion to Lady Mason, makes you believe that one can love all the more strongly with age. For an entertaining, thoughtful (and long--over 800 pages) Victorian read, OF is perfect.”
