Book Description

In Miss Mackenzie Trollope made a deliberate attempt 'to prove that a novel may be produced without any love, but as he candidly admits in his Autobiography, the attempt "breaks down before the conclusion." In taking for his heroine a middle-aged spinster, Trollope chose to go against the custom followed by himself and his contemporaries of writing about young girls in love.

Miss Margaret Mackenzie is a lonely young woman when she receives an inheritance after the death of her brother Walter which amounts to £ 800 a year, quite a substantial allowance in the 1860s. Subsequently Margaret moves from London to Littlebath where she takes care of her niece Susanna. Being fair and wealthy, she becomes the object of desire of three gentlemen in particular: her cousin John Ball, Mr Maguire the clergyman and Mr Rubb, junior partner in the company of her brother Tom. Margaret’s destiny changes abruptly when her lawyer tells her that actually Walter’s money is not hers since it was given to her before Jonathan Ball’s death and that it belongs to John Ball.
Mr Trollope casts a critical glance at all the intricacies of the Victorian era: money, social position, marriage and business. Nevertheless, the novel is a suspenseful family saga and the plot is so cleverly constructed that it surpasses many a story written in the 21st century.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Most Difficult Kind of Romantic Story to Write 20 février 2016
Par L. Martin - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I guess the most important thing to say about this novel is that it's very funny! However, the novelist usually manages somehow to convey, as he's depicting people more or less ineptly struggling to live and prosper within the rigid rules and conventions of Victorian society, that he likes and/or has compassion for these poor screw-ups.

As for the exemplary characters (here Ms Mackenzie and her friends), Trollope is happy to depict them being exemplary in ways that are extreme, but at the same time he seems aware that in reality such people would almost never be met with, and might well be quite irritating if they were.This latter characteristic of Trollope's novels, and this one in particular, was probably dicatated in part by the fact that the Victorian public wanted only the most virtuous heroes and heroines. The former characteristic of his work, a kind of easy-going, amused tolerance for fools and knaves, may have been the real Trollope. I think he knew that most humans are deeply flawed, and enjoyed depicting such people. In this he reminds me of a novelist from a hundred years earlier, the product of a much less moralistic England—Henry Fielding, author of "Tom Jones."

The bottom line is that this is a novel which starts out to tell the story of a woman almost certainly doomed to be a spinster, and ends with a great deal of delightful suspense as to whether the author can believably rescue her from that fate, while at the same time giving us a view of middle- and upper-class Victorian society that, as in all his novels, always has the ring of truth.

The heroine, a hopelessly dull, poor, and not so beautiful spinster, who has spent her thirty-some years mostly nursing invalids, suddenly is told that she is the heiress of her recently deceased brother, the last relative that she nursed. Another brother, who also was once possessed of a fortune, lives with 7 children, a disagreeable wife, and a failing business. Margaret, the pathetic, lonely spinster, feels obligated to somehow help out her brother's family in spite of his obnoxious wife. She decides to take their second daughter, Susana, under her care and provide her with a good education. She also decides to move to Littlebath, a sort of resort town outside of London. She rents a small, attractive house and manages to set up her living situation as becomes her new station in life and register Susana in a fashionable school in the area..

As soon as her new position becomes known, Margaret is besieged with proposals of marriage. She also finds that in Littlebath she has a choice of society. One is to become a member of a church group with a very controlling pastor's wife, Mrs. Stumfold and an obnoxious curate, Mr. Maguire. The other choice is a group confessed to be worldly-minded and devilish that is led by her next door neighbor, Miss Todd. Margaret sticks her toe in each group. She would like to be friends with a Miss Bath, who seems like a lovely person, and although allowed to visit Miss Todd because of a long-standing friendship, Miss Baker is completely under the control of Mrs. Stumfold. Margarel, although quiet and unassuming, refuses to come under this domination.

While at Littlebath, Margaret is visited by a Mr. Samuel Rubb, the son of her brother Thomas's partner in the oilcloth business of Rubb and Mackenzie. Mr. Rubb has come to make a business call to solicit a large loan from Margaret to save the failing business. Margaret readily agrees, although she knows that it is not a wise investment. She determines that if all fails, she will consider the money a gift to her brother. In the middle of all this, she is invited to The Cedars to visit her aunt and uncle, Lord and Lady Ball. Through a mix-up and falling out between two brothers a generation before, the family fortune came to Margaret's two brothers, and although Thomas had squandered his share, William had left his to Margaret, while the title would stay in the Ball family. Lady Ball, a cranky, manipulative woman, was convinced that it was Margaret's duty to marry her son John, a bald widower with nine children, so that the money (what was left of it) and the title could be joined together once again.

Margaret escaped the Ball family and returned once again to her lonely independent life in Littlebath. Before she knew it, she had two more suitors as well as cousin John Ball -- Mr.Rudd continued to call and pressed his suite, and Mr. Maguire realized that with Margaret's money he could become independent of the Stumfolds. As Margaret was considering the pro's and con's of her three suitors, realizing that her money was the goal of all three, but also seeing that marriage to one of them would be a way to escape from her boring, lonely life. As she was considering which of the three would be the least offensive to her personally to marry, she received an urgent call to the bedside of her brother Thomas. As Thomas' illness was terminal, she established herself as his nurse, and on his deathbed promised to divide what was left of her money with the frantic and still obnoxious Mrs. Thomas Mackenzie.

Thus, I have set up the story for you. Who will Margaret choose? What will her future life be? The three suitors continue to besiege her even at the Thomas Mackenzie home, and she begins to see that the fulfillment of her life could be in nursing, an occupation that had occupied her since her early years. She is also besieged by Mrs. Thomas, Sarah, who wants the settlement of the funds Margaret has promised to her husband. She wants to know what will become of her 6 remaining children, (Margaret has taken charge of Susana.) and the Balls want to know what will become of John Ball's 9. Mr. Maguire has fought with Mrs. Stumfold and resigned from the Littlebath church. He desperately needs Margaret's money to set himself up as vicar of a competing church in Littlebath. Mr. Rudd is also desperate to marry. Margaret's loan to the business seemingly did not save it. What will happen? Read the book to find out.

One could ask this question of our heroine, or, indeed, of the reader!

I am all for meandering plots, slow buildups to love, and great writing, I really am! But this nearly took the cake, as the saying goes!

I love Trollope, I love stories of plain women, firmly on the shelf, who find love. I love freebies ... so, what had I to lose?

There are reviews aplenty, written with insight and intelligence, extolling this story's virtues, and Trollope's Victorian sensibilities, his satirical eye, and his keen knowledge of the human condition. Read them; they will help you decide if you'd like this novel.

For my part, I did like it - I am partial to all those things I mentioned above, but holy Toledo, is there a heroine in the history of English Literature as stoic?? As *obedient* (to a phlegmatic lump of a man who could not bring himself to take the situation in hand)??? As lachrymose????


Keep these things in mind, Potential Reader. There are a lot of words between "once upon and time," and "they lived happily ever after," [THAT IS NOT A SPOILER - for the love of all that is holy, this had to have a happy ending!!] And they are lovely words. Brew plenty of tea, find your coziest throw rug, snuggle up and settle in for Trollope in all his glory. Gallons of tea....

Recommended... but you've been cautioned!

A lesser known novel by that giant of Victorian novels, Anthony Trollope. I, for one, enjoyed the story and feel that Miss Mackenzie is one of Trollope's best heroines. She is not as self-denying and self-sacrificing as some of his others.She is someone with whom modern readers can emphasize. The story is much shorter than most of Trollope's novels and is a fast read. That may be a good selling point for introducing Trollope to new readers (I myself, prefer his longer, more involved novels in general such as The Way We Live Now).

Anthony Trollope wrote some fun stuff. The humor sneaks up on you and because he wrote in the mid 1800s it isn't always evident. Nice that everything came out so well for the lead character. By the way, I'm glad I read several of his Barsetshire stories before being introduced to Angela Thirkell because she continues the tradition with new characters and the names and settings are familiar.
