Summary Anthony Trollope's novels often explore the ways that wealth -- and the promise of it -- can impact human behavior. In Orley Farm, a protracted probate case spanning several generations ultimately tears a family apart. A must-read for fans of Trollope's unflinchingly realistic portraits of the dark undercurrents of Victorian life.
