Summary

Young, attractive and wealthy, Alice Vavasor is a woman in the prime of her life. And yet one question torments her: "What should a woman do with her life?" Torn between the kind but dull Mr. Grey and her dangerous and exciting cousin George, she is prone to constant indecision and uncertainty, much to the detriment of Mr. Grey. Can You Forgive Her? is a crisp and engaging novel, brimming with romance, humor, and pathos. It is the first of six in Trollope's celebrated Palliser series.

Enthralling tale

Amusing moral tale of love and lovers, not much politics, narrated as by Trollope and superbly read by David Shaw Parker. Wonderful characterisation by Parker, very droll, full of irony. I think Lady Glencora's voice should have been a bit younger but otherwise perfect, enthralling listening.

Another age comes to life

This is a wonderful book with so many interesting characters and storylines. Despite the politics of the time being somewhat foreign to me, I felt very much at home in this era. Unfortunately I had to return to 2017! Trollope is very definitely one of my favourites!

Great narrator!

For lovers of Victorian age classics and Dickens i think you will love this Trollope too. It's charming and compelling. And the narrator does wonderful accents, voices and emotions.

Amazing performance

This is a captivating rendition of the first book of the Palliser series, which only gets better in subsequent volumes. I absolutely love this reader and these are some of the best books ever written—Trollope has an amazing eye for character and a surprising appreciation of women as full, strong beings. Some weaknesses in the central story here but well made up for by the ancillary narratives. Humor, wisdom, and story story story.
