About the Book

This book's French-themed plot centers on the romance between an innkeeper's son and his essentially adopted niece. The characters are a little lower class than customary for Trollope, and the foreign environment is intriguing, which makes the tale entertaining. It has a lovely, ideal, joyful conclusion. In this book, Trollope focuses his keen eye on the lives of French and French-speaking Swiss tradespeople in a region of France that borders Switzerland rather than on English high society. Unsurprisingly, the plot revolves around a love story, which gives Trollope the opportunity to examine French customs and beliefs regarding marriage and dowries. This book explores the foolishness of those who presume to understand the thoughts of others. When Trollope's fame was at its height, he wrote The Golden Lion of Granpere. This brief but enjoyable book is about Marie Bromar, who after the passing of her mother moves in with the Voss family at the Lion d'Or hotel. It is set in a town in the Vosges mountains in northeastern France. She falls in love with George Voss over a period of years, but George's father Michel bans them from getting married.

About Author

Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope, an English novelist, was born in London, England, on April 24, 1815, and died on December 6, 1882. His popular success kept the nature and scope of his intellectual merit a secret until many years after his passing. His best-known and most beloved works are a series of novels set in the fictional English county of Barsetshire, but he also produced compelling novels about political life and studies with deep psychological insight. One of his greatest assets was a stable, continuous understanding of Victorian England's social systems, which he recreated in his writings with an uncommon level of solidity. Trollope was raised by a former barrister, unsuccessful gentleman farmer, and sometimes scholar. The prestigious public schools in Winchester and Harrow made him dissatisfied. Awkward teenage behavior persisted far into his 20s. He labored terribly as a subordinate clerk in the General Post Office from 1834 to 1841, but after that, he was sent as a postal surveyor to Ireland, where he started to lead a more active social life. He built a home in Clonmel, Tipperary, and wed Englishwoman Rose Heseltine in 1844. After that, he started a writing career that exudes a strong sense of great vigor and adaptability.
