“The Way We Live Now” by Anthony Trollope

GaylynRecommended by GayLynThe Way We Live Now

This classic novel takes a step back in the time of mid-1800 England. The title, “The Way We Live Now”, applies to that time, and our current time with the exception of women’s rights. The story unfolds with a variety of characters portraying outward appearances, inward thoughts and manipulations. It places one in an understanding of the hierarchies of English nobility as well. Amusingly, some of the English expressions are still used today. It’s a slow read, but well worth the patience.
