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.

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.
