Publisher's Summary

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. The Last Chronicle is a joyful end to the Chronicles of Barsetshire. Here Trollope skillfully weaves together plot threads and characters from earlier novels in the series and provides a fond farewell tour of his cherished diocese.

sorry that it had to end

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole series! Beautifully read by David Shaw-Parker. He takes his time and let's Trollope's writing shine through and his characters come to life. I was intrigued by this picture of country life, in particular the clergy, in 1860's England, thinking of what changes will come to that way of life, and that all this took place exactly at that time of the US Civil War. I listened to the whole series in order, starting with the Warden, and I'm glad I did, but each volume can stand alone. I'm excited to see that the 3rd volume, Dr. Thorne, has been produced as a television drama by Julian a Fellowes. There are stories about royalty, Revolution, and so on, but few stories of ordinary people going about their lives, meeting happiness and adversity, and by their actions revealing their character and much of the foundation of how we live today. The series is absolutely my best listen to date!

Wow! David Shaw-Parker

I like Anthony Trollope novels. I like historical fiction, particularly of the.18th the 19th century period when the English language was still a thing of beauty. Having said that, the right reader makes all the difference and David Shaw-Parker is the right reader. What a shame Trollope never got to hear his words come to life but I have no doubt that this reading is just as he would have it.
I purchased 2 versions of the Warden AND the BBC cast version of the Chronicles, trying to find a good interpretation. I regret wasting the money now that I discovered David Shaw-Parker. I listen to anything he reads.

Compelling narrative

The performance couldn't be better. So much variety in the voices it's easy to forget there's one narrator. Trollope weaves together the various plots to great effect.
