Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope( Book )

13 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fortune smiles on Mark Robarts, a young man of charm and principle. Not only has Lady Lufton appointed him Vicar of Framley, but he has also been blessed with a happy marriage. Yet, his naivety and social ambition draw him toward a sophisticated, worldly set who question his moral values and sense of honour. Falling under the spell of the roguish Nathaniel Sowerby, Robarts is brought to the edge of ruin. Only his friends can save him but will they discover his predicament in time? For Lady Lufton there are further trials and tribulations when she suspects her son of forming an unsuitable attachment. Anthony Trollope brings all his accustomed wit, perceptive eye and lively comic touches to this matchless portrayal of nineteenth century life. Published to great acclaim in 1860, Framley Parsonage is one of his most popular novels and the fourth in the Barsetshire Chronicles."--Publisher's description

Aurora Floyd by M. E Braddon( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Lady Audley, Aurora is a beautiful young woman bigamously married and threatened with exposure by a blackmailer. But in Aurora Floyd, and in many of the novels written in imitation of it, bigamy is little more than a euphemism, a device to enable the heroine, and vicariously the reader, to enjoy the forbidden sweets of adultery without adulterous intentions. Passionate, sometimes violent, Aurora does succeed in enjoying them, her desires scarcely chastened by her disastrous first marriage. She represents a challenge to the mid-Victorian sexual code, and particularly to the feminine ideal of simpering, angelic young ladyhood. P.D. Edward's introduction evaluates the novel's leading place among 'bigamy-novels' and Braddon's treatment of the power struggle between the sexes, as well as considering the similarities between the author and her heroine

Rachel Ray by Anthony Trollope( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Trollope was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. He wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues and conflicts of his day. This novel offers an entertaining view of a small community living its life in mid-nineteenth-century England. The novel first appeared in 1863, a year in which public reaction against the excesses of the popular sensationalist novel prompted the author to state that he was writing about "the commonest details of commonplace life among the most ordinary people."

He knew he was right by Anthony Trollope( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in Undetermined and English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central theme of the novel is the sexual jealousy of Louis Trevelyan who unjustly accuses his wife Emily of a liaison with a friend of her father's. As his suspicion deepens into madness, Trollope gives us a profound psychological study in which Louis' obsessive delirium is comparable to the tormented figure of Othello, tragically flawed by self-deception. Against the disintegration of the Trevelyans' marriage, a lively cast of characters explore the ideas of female emancipation and how to distinguish between obedience and subjection. Although himself no supporter of women's rights, in this novel some of Trollope's most spirited characters are single women. Published in 1869, the same year as John Stuart Mills' The Subjection of Women and while the Divorce Act was a relative novelty, He Knew He Was Right was a timely novel, drawing a fine line between the obedience of women within marriage and their total possession by men.
