The Belton Estate

The Belton Estate

Following a family tragedy, the entail of Clara Amedroz’s home - the Belton Estate of the title – passes to a distant cousin, the farmer Will Belton. Rejecting his impetuous proposal of marriage in favour of the dull MP Captain Aylmer, Clara finds her new fiancé undemonstrative and – even worse – possessed of an overbearing mother.

The obstacles which face Clara are numerous, and the dependence upon her fiancé too powerful. The difficulties of being a spirited woman in a world made by men are also mirrored in the portrayal of her friend Mary Askerton, previously married to a drunkard. Trollope was writing about real people, ordinary lives, and the novel is a gentle attack on conventional mores.
