Doctor Thorne

This is my second reading of this Trollope novel & I enjoyed it better than I did 30 years ago. His writing style is fresh & one really feels sympathy with Mary & anger towards Frank's family who do not deserve her. It is curious that in just over 130 years or so how our attitude to breeding has changed. Trollope is obsessed by it in this novel. Wonder what he would have thought of our future Queen Kate being the daughter of two former airline stewards.
