Summary

A villainous vicar insinuates himself into the life of a wealthy but foolish widow, ruining the fortunes and happiness of her three children, until they begin to fight back. Published in 1837 by the mother of the better-known Anthony Trollope, this highly readable romance portrays the evangelical movement of the Anglican church in a shocking light that may remind readers of some of the religious abuses of the present day.

- Vicar of Wrexhill

Wonderful tale, I couldn't stop listening ! Interesting it was written by Anthony Trollope's mother. She too did social commentary, their dinner table conversations must have been fun. The reader was excellent.
