Anthony Trollope's stock-in-trade was the life of the great drawing rooms of mid-Victorian England, where the thirst for wealth and political power and the need for love continually formed and reformed in unexpected, illuminating combinations. Can You Forgive Her?, the story of Alice Vavasor, her conundrums in love, and her confusions about the rights and duties of a modern, is the first novel in his magnificent Palliser series; it is energized on every page by the affectionate and ironic delight Trollope felt in observing the entanglements of his splendid characters.

display_description This revealing romp through proper society follows three different women who dare to defy Victorian standards. Can You Forgive Her? comically intertwines the stories of three very independent-minded women who each desires to decide her own fate in a world where love comes second to obedience and familial expectations set them apart from their peers. First and foremost is the spirited Alice Vavasor, whose indecision and repeated rejections of two different swains have made her a woman of both substance and suspicion. Equally determined to have her way is the recently widowed Mrs. Greenow, who was married to a wealthy man at a young age, and who can now decide whom she will take as a husband. And finally, there is the tale of the brazen, free-thinking Glencora M'Cluskie, including her rocky marriage to the loving-but hardheaded-Plantagenet Palliser, whose powerful family appears throughout Anthony Trollope's works. In this classic novel of social satire, Trollope's deft humor and biting examination of the lives and legacies of high society remain as entertaining and inviting as ever. Can You Forgive Her? is the 1st book in the Palliser Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
