Praise for Joanna Trollope and Marrying the Mistress ‘Simply reach for any novel by Joanna Trollope: To do so. .Joanna Trollope’s voice is absolutely clear. She sketches detail with an artist’s eye while letting her characters move the story forward to its natural conclusion.

Praise for Joanna Trollope and Marrying the Mistress ‘Simply reach for any novel by Joanna Trollope: To do so is to put your finger on the very pulse of Western Civilization – its passions . Trollope’s greatest strength lies with her ability to paint a complete picture with a few bold strokes. Also by Joanna Trollope.

Instead, Joanna Trollope offers a domestic drama that gives us an insider's view of what happens to a family when the respected head of the d judge Guy Stockdale-announces he is leaving his wife of 40 years to marry his much younger mistress, Merrion. What makes the situation complex-and the book beach-bag worthy-is that Merrion is far from the stereotypical stealer. She is intelligent, independent, successful and impossible not to like. Reading Marrying the Mistress is like spying on the neighbors that everyone on the street is gossiping about-without the guilt. com A modern-day Austen.

Joanna Trollope amels under palm trees. Laura knew how to deal with those kind of men, knew how to answer their questions. The valuer woman looked rather different. She was almost Laura’s age, for one thing, and she had a quiet, firm manner that made Laura feel she was only interested in figures, and not in the least in Laura and Laura’s plight

Marrying the Mistress dives into the shock waves that buffet the Stockdale family after Guy leaves Laura. All of Joanna Trollope's book are really good. I like stories of families and the complications which develop over time. They keep my interest.

Marrying the Mistress book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I've never read Joanna Trollope before, but appreciated her in-depth look at the human condition. The court official leaned closer  . I especially liked the fact that the "wronged woman" wasn't painted as the usual victim, to be pitied by everyone.

Merrion Palmer was Judge Guy Stockdale’s mistress. His Honour’s ‘totty,’ as the Clerk to the Court so succinctly put it. Guy had been having an affair with her for seven years, and neither Laura, his wife of forty years, nor his two grown-up sons, knew anything about her. Guy and Merrion enjoyed a blissful, uncomplicated relationship in stolen moments in Merrion’s Bayswater flat, but to the rest of the world Guy seemed to be the model husband, father and grandfather. Now the time had come for Guy to move on. Conscious of the passing years, of the wasted opportunities, he didn’t want to keep Merrion a secret any more. He wanted to share her with his family, with the world. He wants, dammit, to marry her. And he is quite unprepared for the painful storm which follows.

A great read. Joanna Trollope shows amazing insight into the way families interact with one another. In this book, a man who has been married for forty odd years tells his wife he is leaving her to marry the much younger woman with whom he has had an affair for seven years. One would expect the trouble to come only between the man and his wife but not so. Every member of the family gets involved and is affected in some way, right down to the teenaged grandchildren.

In spite of the subject matter, Trollope manages to make the husband and the mistress most likeable characters.

  • Brakora
I LOVE Joanna Trollope's novels! They are fun, easy reads!
  • Anen
This was beautifly written but it made me feel so depressed it seemed that most all of the characters really loved and respected th father who cheated on his wife and no one had any good feelings toward the wife who I felt really was mistreated by her husband sons and her own granddaughter the wife lost everything and she was so hurt she really needed someone to love her and hold her. I didnot like the mistress or the daughter in law carrie. I wanted the book to be about hope for everyone.

I love the way Ms. Trollope writes. The stories reflect what is happening in today's society and she presents all participants viewpoints. Her
attention to detail (as in the way an animal or child is responded to and may be thinking) is 'right on'. I have enjoyed everything I have read of hers.

I have read several of Joanne Trollopes books and I enjoyed this one the least. It was well written, but several times throughout the book I wished it would end so that I could start on another book. Don't get me wrong, it was a detailed and descriptive story...but I didn't love any of the characters except for Alan.
Joanna Trollope is such an incitrful writer. I am in my 70's now but I relate to here portraits of family life and the way women have to keep so many balls in the air.The character are all sympathetic even thoose with character defects.
