Anthony Trollope Bicentennial: First Giveaway!

To celebrate the first week of the Anthony Trollope Bicentennial Celebration, it's time for the first giveaway!!   This week, I'm giving away a lovely Vintage Classics paperback copy of Trollope's novel Can You Forgive Her?

Written in 1865, Can You Forgive Her?  is the first of Trollope's beloved Pallisers series.  It's the is the story of Alice Vavasor, a woman torn between two lovers -- the solid and dependable John Grey, and her wild, impulsive cousin George -- but is George just after her money?  Meanwhile, her cousin Lady Glencora has married Plantagenet Palliser, a politician with a bright future, but she can't forget her first love, a handsome scoundrel.  It's a great story -- and did I mention it's 784 pages long?

So that's it!!  I'm excited for the first Trollope giveaway of the month!  Check back soon for more Trollope news and more giveaways!


  1. I have not read this yet and having gotten hooked on Trollope through the Barsetshire series, I'm very interested in checking it out. The more pages, the better as far as I'm concerned! I love the new Vintage editions. Not sure if my blog will link automatically, so my email is lory [at] emeraldcitybookreview [dot] com.

  2. I have half a book left before I will start reading my very first Trollope. I'm looking forward to it. That Vintage edition is gorgeous, and the title is so intriguing, isn't it? Like Lory, I say the more pages the better. My e-mail is mybookstrings [at] gmail [dot] com. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I'm hoping to read that next! I would be thrilled if I could have a copy!

  4. I haven't read this one yet, but read all of his Chronicles of Barsetshire last year and fell for his work big time!
