The Bertrams (1859)
A book of world travel, which is part Middle Eastern commentary but with British wit and satire. There is also a romance - boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy tries to win girl back - set in exotic locations including Jerusalem and Egypt. As usual, Trollope examines the psychology of his characters and this is a riveting book.

About the Author

About The Author
British author Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882) wrote dozens of novels involving political, social, and gender issues, and current affairs. Sir Alec Guinness was a huge fan and reportedly never journeyed without a Trollope novel. Trollope is perhaps best known for his Barsetshire series, which is a collection of six novels.
His father, was a barrister but the family struggled financially at times. He was born in London and educated at public school. In 1827, his mother Frances Trollope moved to America with Trollope's three younger siblings while Anthony stayed in England. His mother eventually returned and made a name for herself as a writer, soon earning a good income. The family moved to Belgium, partially to avoid arrest for debt. Anthony was offered a commission in an Austrian cavalry regiment but had to learn French and German, and took up a clerkship in the General Post Office.
From there, he moved to Ireland and began writing on the long train trips he needed to do for work. He eventually became one of the most prolific writers of all time. Other books by Trollope include:
The Warden (1855)
Barchester Towers (1857)
Doctor Thorne (1858)
Framley Parsonage (1861)
The Small House at Allington (1864)
The Last Chronicle of Barset (1867)
