The Two Heroines of Plumplington

Read by Arnold

(4.2 stars; 26 reviews)

In the small English Town of Plumplington the daughter of a brewer and that of a banker each has selected her future husband contrary to the wishes of her father. Both young men are regarded as not 'good enough', though each is, in fact, much like the respective father when at that age. The girls, with the support of various townspeople, endeavor to get their way. One refuses to wear the nice clothes her father so much admires her in, while the other takes to her bed and refuses to eat. The fathers, of course, give in, and ultimately agree to the happy ending.

Delightful narration!

(5 stars)

While I’m a huge Trollope fan this is not my favorite as it is a bit silly. Still worth a listen as the narration is superb!

very silly

i wouldn't be surprised to learn that Trollope wrote this as a child.
