Lady Anna is not without moments of interest, but the novel is awfully repetitious and drawn-out. One of the main characters, Daniel Thwaite, is unusually two-dimensional (for Trollope). Lady Anna is notable for the most violent scene that I have ever encountered in Trollope -- handled with remarkable psychological aplomb and insight --, and notable also as testimony for the strength of aristocratic sentiments in nineteenth-century Britain.
This was my first taste of Trollope, but I don't expect it to be my last. I found myself swept away on a tale of deep, unrelenting love as the noble born Anna stood by her beau Daniel Thwaite a lowley journeyman tailor. As Anna's mother fights for the right for her own and her daughter's title and for the fortune that they should have inherited from her duplicitous husband, so begins her descent into maddness. The contenders for the title and money, the Lovels, are split between accepting and rejecting Anna's claim. As the head of both sides fear they will lose, they try to set up a marriage between Anna and her cousin Earl Lovel, but she remains besotted with her childhood sweetheart, the young man raised with her as his father protected and fought for Anna and her mother. It really is a guessing game throughout the book as to whether Anna will win her title, her love and whether she can cling on to a relationship with her mother. I can only imagine the scandal this book of social class must have caused in its day!
