Der Hörer folgt in diesem interessanten Hörbuch dem Leben der jungen Cecilia Holt. Als Mädchen wuchs sie in behaglichen Umständen auf, aufgezogen von ihrer Mutter, und hatte alles was das Herz begehrt - jedenfalls fast. Ihr Verlobter Sir Francis Geraldine behandelt sie nur mit Gleichgültigkeit, weswegen Cecilia ihre Verlobung mit ihm beendet. Kurz darauf zieht sie ins Ausland, wo sie auf George Western trifft und die beiden kommen sich näher. Das Problem ist jedoch: Cecilia erzählt ihm nichts von ihrer Verlobung.
Zu Zeiten seiner Veröffentlichung war der Roman "Auge um Auge" sehr kontrovers. Erzählt wird die Geschichte eines jungen Mannes von Adel, der ein bürgerliches Mädchen verführt. Dabei bleibt es jedoch nicht, denn es dauert nicht lange, da wird das Mädchen schwanger. Sobald der junge Mann jedoch von der Situation erfährt, verlässt er das junge Mädchen, welches nun auf sich selbst gestellt ist. Jedoch birgt die Geschichte einige Überraschungen, denn die Geschichte findet nicht das für die Zeit des 19. Jahrhunderts übliche Ende. Eckart Ischebeck erweckt die Charaktere zum Leben und zieht die Hörer in seinen Bann.
Originally published in 1878, Is He Popenjoy? is a delightful comic novel written late in the career of author Anthony Trollope. The plot revolves around the themes of property and inheritance, as the relatives of the Marquis of Brotherton question the legitimacy of a foreign-born heir to the family estate. Lord George Germain, as the younger brother of the marquis, can neither inherit the family title nor enjoy the income from the estate. He occupies the ancestral home, Manor Cross, only by grudging permission of his elder brother, who lives abroad.

Six lavish BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisations of Anthony Trollope's much-loved novels. Anthony Trollope's series of witty and gently satirical stories of provincial life are set in the fictional town of Barchester and its surrounding county of Barsetshire. The canvas is broad and colourful, with a set of iconic characters in whose lives we become intimately involved as they grow up, grow old, and fall in or out of love and friendship across the years.
In The Last Chronicle of Barset, Trollope concludes his saga of ecclesiastical life. At the heart of the novel is the plight of Josiah Crawley, a proud, impoverished clergyman who faces difficult legal circumstances. Caught amid poverty, Josiah appears to have stolen a check and is forced to stand trial - despite the fact that he cannot remember its origins. To make matters worse, his daughter, Grace, desperately seeks the approval of Archdeacon Grantly, whose son she intends to marry.

Even when the more deserving John Eame, presents himself she is still unable to see past her feelings for Crosbie.

The Way We Live Now is a complex and compulsive tale that traces the career of Augustus Melmotte, a strange and mysterious financier who bursts into London society like a guided missile. In setting up a dubious scheme based on speculative money and stock market gambles, Melmotte manages to lure in several members of the English aristocracy, for whom money is the summum bonum. The world is at his feet - until the corruption catches up with him.
Anthony Trollope’s The Warden was the first of Trollope’s hugely successful Barchester Chronicles, appearing in 1855 and reversing the rather unfortunate sales of his previous three novels. It concerns the story of Mr. Septimus Harding, Warden of Hiram's Hospital almshouses and Precentor of Barchester Cathedral.
Originally published in the 1876 Christmas edition of The Graphic, Christmas at Thompson Hall is a Victorian tale concerning the proper Mr. and Mrs. Brown and their journey from southern France to Thompson Hall to celebrate Christmas with their relatives - a trip that becomes a comedy of errors once Mr. Brown's throat condition, a malady that almost prevented the trip entirely, worsens.
In this world of bribes, vendettas, and swindling, in which heiresses are gambled and won, Trollope's characters embody all the vices: Lady Carbury is 'false from head to foot'; her son Felix has 'the instincts of a horse, not approaching the higher sympathies of a dog'; and Melmotte - the colossal figure who dominates the book - is a 'horrid, big, rich scoundrel...a bloated swindler...a vile city ruffian'. But as vile as he is, he is considered one of Trollope's greatest creations.
In Phineas Finn, the second of the Palliser series, Trollope balances the rival demands of public and private life. Phineas Finn, an irresistible but penniless young Irish barrister enters Parliament and comes to London leaving behind him an Irish sweetheart, Mary Flood-Jones. In London, Phineas wins friends on all sides and is admitted into high society. However, he also falls more-or-less in love, first with politically-minded Lady Laura Standish, then with Violet Effingham, and finally with wealthy widow Madame Max Goesler.
Der Hörer wird von Karen Schulz-Vorbachs Stimme zurück in das 19. Jahrhundert versetzt und folgt der Geschichte von Margret Mackenzie. Diese erbt nach dem Tod ihres Vaters und ihrer beiden älteren Brüder ein beachtliches Vermögen. Nachdem sie Jahrzehnte lang von der Welt abgekapselt und unselbständig war, hat sie nun plötzlich eine neu gewonnene Freiheit und Unabhängigkeit. Doch gleichzeitig ist sie auch einsam und weltfremd.

In the fourth of the ‘Palliser’ stories, Trollope follows Phineas Finn’s return to the dangerous world of Westminster politics. When his political rival is murdered, Phineas is thrown under suspicion and eventually finds himself standing trial at the Old Bailey. The situation is complicated by the presence of two women in his life: his old flame Lady Laura, whose estranged husband is determined to destroy Phineas’s reputation, and the wealthy and enigmatic widow, Madame Max.
Can You Forgive Her? is the first of the six in the Palliser series. Trollope inextricably binds together the issues of parliamentary election and marriage, of politics and privacy. The values and aspirations of the governing stratum of Victorian society are ruthlessly examined, and none remains unscathed. But above all Trollope focuses on the predicament of women. 'What should a woman do with her life?' asks Alice Vavasor of herself, and this theme is echoed by every other woman in the audiobook.
Barchester Towers, the sequel to The Warden, is the second novel in Trollope's major series, the Chronicles of Barsetshire. It focuses on the power struggle between Archdeacon Grantly, Mr. Slope and the Proudies as they fight for control of the diocese of Barchester. Meanwhile, another struggle is taking place for the heart of Eleanor Bold. Who will win her? The vile Mr. Slope, the idling Bertie Stanhope or someone else entirely?
