Publisher's summary

"Ayala's Angel" (1878) is a novel by Anthony Trollope. The story focuses on two orphaned sisters, Ayala and Lucy Dormer, and their trials, first with their relatives, then of the heart. As in most Trollope novels, pages are given over to subplots related to the main plot.

Excerpt from the book:

"It was now the beginning of February. As Tom and his uncle had walked from Somerset House the streets were dry and the weather fine; but, as Mr. Dosett had remarked, the wind was changing a little out of the east and threatened rain. When Tom left the house it was already falling. He had walked there with a top coat and umbrella, but he had forgotten both as he banged the door after him in his passion; and, though he remembered them as he hurried down the steps, he would not turn and knock at the door and ask for them. He was in that humour which converts outward bodily sufferings almost into a relief."

Great story! Poor narration.

This was a great Trollope love story about our silly ideas of love. I laughed out loud several times. But the narration was not good. Sound quality was fine, but the narrator didn’t pause between paragraphs and it was often hard to follow where the reader was located inside the story.

Very enjoyable overall

I read this as a paper book, and enjoyed it, then saw this on audible- the reader is not a great favorite, but she does a good job, and clearly reads as though she understands the story completely. If you are a fan of Trollope, you’ll like it. You can adjust the speed of the narration if you like to do that
