Doctor Wortle's School


Read by Angel5

(4.3 stars; 26 reviews)

Anthony Trollope’s fortieth novel, published in 1881, concerns a respectable Christian boys’ school whose proprietor unknowingly hires a woman who apparently has two husbands: A devoted English scholar and an abusive drunkard from the American south. The book interweaves a sensitive and realistic exploration of Dr. Wortle’s moral dilemma with a humorous look at small-town gossip and--of course--a romance involving the doctor’s beautiful young daughter. ( Summary by Angela Rowland ) (6 hr 8 min)

probably a nice story but it is read very fast. How much better it would have been to slow down and let one digest the story.

Most enjoyable!
