The author brings to life a group of people living in a community; loving and hating each other for various reasons. This story takes place in England in the 1700's but could be happening today. People and personalities are the same and our interest in them and their interactions are the same. We follow the Warden and his daughter living happily in the community until one man raises the question: "Does the Warden deserve to be paid so much to do so little?" And so the whole community is rent by controversary and things will never be the same.
This is the first book in a series about this community.
Publishers Weekly, 2013-09-02 This first novel in Trollope's classic Chronicles of Barsetshire series pits reformer John Bold against Septimus Harding, the precentor of Barchester Cathedral and warden of Hiram's Hospital, an almshouse supported by a bequest to the local diocese. As Bold works to expose the fact that more of the charity's income goes to Harding than to its bedesmen, he begins to take a romantic interest in Harding's youngest daughter, Eleanor. In this audio edition, narrator David Shaw-Parker delivers a winning performance that keeps listeners engaged throughout. With a deep, accented voice Shaw-Parker brings this 19th-century novel to life. His timing and tone are spot-on and he creates distinct voices for the book's many characters. (Apr.)
