861 3080 TREMAIN, Rose Restoration
Softcover; Trade PB Penguin: NY; c1989,1994; First Edition Thus Very Good+  
371 pages; No spine creases, very light edgewear, image from film on front cover. ; Basis for the movie of the same name starring Robert Downey, Jr. set in 17th Century England during the reign of Charles II. ; 'The double import of Tremain's title--it refers both to the reign of the 17th-century Restoration King Charles II and to the restoration to the protagonist of his beloved home and aspirations for his life--is one of the subtle delights of this accomplishe d novel, shortlisted for the Booker and winner of other awards in Britain. The story is of one man's rise and fall and rise again, of his discovery of love and faith, and his emotional maturation in a crucible of harrowing experiences. In a larger sense, however, it is a social, cultural and psychological picture of that age, when bluebloods lived in gaudy excess but others were expected to be content in their "appointed stations."

Through the whim of his adored monarch, narrator Robert Merivel becomes veterinarian to the Royal Dogs, unofficial Fool, and "paid cuckold," when he marries the King's mistress, Celia Clemence, on condition that he himself will never fall in love with her. Having unwittingly succumbed to that forbidden emotion, Merivel is cast off by both wife and King, and must join his dour Quaker friend Pearce working in a lunatic asylum in remote, bleak Whittlesea. Another tragic loss sends him back to plague-ridden London, where his life comes full turn. Merivel embodies the contradictions of his era: though he is vain, frivolous and cynical, he is also a man of sensibility, intelligence and imaginative daring; his wry, witty voice holds the reader absorbed. A thoroughly satisfying read, the complex plot is augmented by acutely observed historical detail, nuanced character development, humor and poignancy.' -Publishers Weekly. Published @ $14.00

The Warden, Barchester Towers, Doctor Thorne [3 Volume Boxed Set], TROLLOPE, Anthony
862 7055 TROLLOPE, Anthony The Warden, Barchester Towers, Doctor Thorne [3 Volume Boxed Set]
Hardcover Folio Society: London; 2002; Fourth Printing 172,476,524 pages Illustrated by Alexy Pendle; B&W Illustrations: Very Good+ 
Quarter cloth bindings with decorated paper covered boards and decorated endpapers. Two of the lovely volumes are near fine.The very good 'Barchester Towers' volume has circular dampstains on front and a few white spots on back. No dust wrappers as issued, blue slipcase, faintly dusty, has bumped corners.; The first three volumes of "The Barsetshire Novels", the first serial fiction in English literature. The six novel series tells the story of the professional and landed classes in the Victorian cathedral town of Barchester and the surrounding county. Angela Thirkell readers will recognize many of the family names and place names as she 'borrowed' Trollope's Barsetshire for her own novels of 20th century English life. 'The Warden' introduction by Owen Chadwick, 'Barchester Towers' introduction by Ruth Rendell, 'Doctor Thorne' introduction by P.D. James.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS and the Angela Thirkell email discussion group:'Contemporary reviewers describe "Barchester Towers" as a comic masterpiece, centering on the burning question of who will rule the diocese of Barchester. They are absolutely correct. In this novel, second in the famous Barsetshire series, Trollope introduces one of the most detestable characters in all of literature, Mrs. Proudie, and one of the slimiest, Mr. Slope. There is the dear eccentric and mild Mr. Harding, his highly marriageable daughter Eleanor, and perhaps my favorite, the Archdeacon Grantly, the spiritual opposer to the Proudie-Slope contingent and a stubborn, comic, and still admirable character. This is a classic and must reading.' This three volume set will incur extra shipping charges if sent outside the US. Images are actual copies on offer.

Brother and Sister: A Novel, TROLLOPE, Joanna
863 6371 TROLLOPE, Joanna Brother and Sister: A Novel
Hardcover; Ex-Library Academy Chicago Publishers: NY; 2004; First US Edition 311 pages Very Good in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Ex-library book with usual stamps and markings; in nice condition. Spine ends faintly bumped. Unclipped dust wrapper has no library markings, is faintly edgeworn. ; 'A keenly observed and elegant new novel about the families we're born into, and the ones we create.

We all need to know where we come from, where we belong. But for David and Natalie, this need to know is even more urgent, since they are adopted. Brought up by the same parents, but born to two different mothers, they have grown up as brother and sister, and share a fierce loyalty.

Their decision, in their late thirties, to embark upon the journey to find their birth mothers is no straightforward matter. It affects, acutely and often painfully, their spouses and children, the people they work with, and, most poignantly, the two women who gave them up for adoption all those years ago, and who have since made other lives, even borne other children.

Exploring her subject with inimitable imagination and humanity, Joanna Trollope once again works her magic. In this rich narrative, at once gritty and graceful, she exposes the extraordinary challenges that arise at the heart of ordinary lives.'

Archie had snatched Liza from her own engagement party to someone else, wooed her, swept her off to his father in Scotland, and finally married her.

When his city-clean Rover stopped in the drive, Sir Andrew was not alone. Beside him was a golden lady in caramel suede, a warm, witty, desirable widow whom everyone - except Archie - adored at once. Archie saw his father's mistress as the worm in the bud of his perfect life - a life that was to be wrenched apart before he and Liza could re-create their world.'

Carr's boldly original landscapes are praised today for capturing an untamed British Columbia and its indigenous peoples just before industrialization would change them forever. Susan Vreeland brings to life this fiercely independent and underappreciated figure. From illegal potlatches in tribal communities to the gaiety of prewar Paris, Carr's story is arresting and vibrant, and Vreeland tells it with gusto and suspense.'

' This novel was recently selected by 'Time Magazine' as one of the one hundred best English-language novels written from 1923 to the present.; "This is my favorite novel, second only to The Diary of the Provincial Lady," writes Holly H. of the ATS and AT and DES discussion groups. "I can't help but love the narrator Charles Ryder and the members of theMarchmain family. Charles is the quintessential looker-on who faithfully records a glorious lost past and grace that was England before World War II, as personified by the Marchmain family, in particular. This is the story of his love for two of the wealthy Catholic children, the innocent yet dissolute Lord Sebastian and the ultimately disconsolate Lady Julia. They are surrounded by memorable characters of the first order. One of the greatest literary pleasures of my life is discovering this gem of a novel and re-reading it on an annual basis. I highly recommend it to you."
