Barry decides to beat up his sister--remember he has two states 'drunk' and 'asleep. He'd rather see her dead than married. A brave servant girl slips out of the house the next morning to go and tell Mrs. Kelly--Martin's mother--what's happened. Kelly comes and fetches the girl--while Barry's asleep--to her own home.
Martin's mother and sisters will care for her and protect her--as best they can--from Barry. Kelly is an awesome defender who can hold her own. Martin Kelly returns from his visit to see Lord Ballandine and learns all that is happened. Meanwhile, Lord Ballindine is entertaining the idea of marriage himself. He's in fact engaged to marry a Miss Fanny Wyndham. Soon after the novel opens, he hears from an acquaintance, that HIS match has been broken off. The marriage isn't to be after all. He rushes to Grey Abbey--where she is staying with her aunt and uncle, her guardians--and is confronted with all kinds of unpleasantness.
Lord Cashel, the uncle, has changed his mind entirely, and, has persuaded Fanny that it's in her best interest to call off the engagement. The truth is UGLY. Fanny's brother has died; Fanny went from being moderately wealthy to ridiculously wealthy. Lord Cashel wants his own son, Lord Kilcullen, to marry Fanny. He needs Ballindine out of the way.
Lord Cashel won't let him see her, and forbids him to come to the house or write. Lord Ballandine loves Fanny and is determined to marry her. He won't be easily dissuaded. The book alternates back and forth between these two dramatic love stories. Trollope created some memorable characters in this one.
I really loved getting to spend time with Fanny especially! I liked Anty well enough, I suppose, but she spent a lot of time in bed almost dying. Anty is one of those good--practically saintly--characters.
Imagine someone apologizing for still breathing, and you've got the right idea. Anty's biggest flaw is that she wants every single person to be happy and get what they want. And that's just not possible. Fanny was a strong character, for the most part. Yes, she was persuaded--for a day, maybe two, to follow her uncle's advice, but she remains true to her heart, and VOCAL about what she wants.
I really enjoyed spending time with these two. I didn't prefer one story to the other really. Both were compelling. I really enjoyed Trollope's writing. He sketches scenes and characters very well! Here's a description of Sally, one of Mrs. Kelly's servants. Kelly kept two ordinary in-door servants to assist in the work of the house; one, an antiquated female named Sally, who was more devoted to her tea-pot than ever was any bacchanalian to his glass.
Were there four different teas in the inn in one evening, she would have drained the pot after each, though she burst in the effort. Sally was, in all, an honest woman, and certainly a religious one; — she never neglected her devotional duties, confessed with most scrupulous accuracy the various peccadillos of which she might consider herself guilty; and it was thought, with reason, by those who knew her best, that all the extra prayers she said, — and they were very many, — were in atonement for commissions of continual petty larceny with regard to sugar.
On this subject did her old mistress quarrel with her, her young mistress ridicule her; of this sin did her fellow-servant accuse her; and, doubtless, for this sin did her Priest continually reprove her; but in vain. Though she would not own it, there was always sugar in her pocket, and though she declared that she usually drank her tea unsweetened, those who had come upon her unawares had seen her extracting the pinches of moist brown saccharine from the huge slit in her petticoat, and could not believe her.
Favorite quotes: Time and the hour run through the longest day. I hope it may lead you to feel that you may be contented and in comfort without having everything which you think necessary to your happiness. It has given me a great deal of unmixed satisfaction. Nor will I submit to whatever fate cold, unfeeling people may doom me, merely because I am a woman and alone.
I will not give up Lord Ballindine, if I have to walk to his door and tell him so. And were I to do so, I should never think that I had forgotten myself. For one thing I have to thank you: you have dispelled the idea that I could look for help to anyone in this family. This was Trollope's second novel, and although the plot, which deals with two courtships, isn't as balanced as it could be and would be later , it does show much of what characterizes Trollope's work.
There's a nicely realized setting Ireland, where Trollope worked for the Post Office for some years , good characters though his character analysis isn't yet as sharp and perceptive as it would later become , and wry humor. Apr 05, Ginny rated it it was amazing.
The Kellys and the O'Kellys book. Read 19 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of. He is Lord Cashel, guardian of Fanny Wyndham, one of the two strongly contrasted heroines in The Kellys and the O'Kellys; In his second novel, once again.
I loved this early work. Trollope was only 33 when he wrote this. It sold copies at the time, but I think it is one of his best. It is more tightly written more self-edited perhaps? Mar 20, David rated it liked it Shelves: trollope. This is Trollope's second novel. It is better than his first novel, The Macdermots of Ballycloran, and, like it, is set in Ireland, where Trollope lived for several years while working for the British post office.
Important trivia: Trollope is the inventor of the mailbox. Not the one at your door, but the one on the street where anyone can deposit mail to be sent. Jul 18, Tom James rated it liked it. The story of two Irish families, one aristocratic the O'Kellys and one middle class the Kellys who each have an elder son seeking marriage. Set in , prior to the potato famine the book was written in , the book does not deal with that matter at all. This is Trollope's second novel and The story of two Irish families, one aristocratic the O'Kellys and one middle class the Kellys who each have an elder son seeking marriage.
This is Trollope's second novel and it did not sell well when it was first published. It is, nevertheless, a beautifully crafted story with characters that seem real, many of whom you would like to know. Typical Trollope fare, the novel deals with character, money, domestic injustice, and tests of integrity. Not-so-typical of Trollope is that he deals with the issue of family domestic abuse as well. If you like the novels of Trollope or of Jane Austen, or you enjoyed "Downton Abbey", by all means, read this book.
Great characters and a wry sense of humour made this book very enjoyable although I did feel that the plot was overly predictable. Jan 06, Lauretta rated it it was ok. Trollope is a wonderful author with incredible insight into the human character. This was his first book.
