`You must give up this mad idea, Frank ... there is but one course left open to you. You MUST marry money`
Doctor Thorne, considered by Trollope to be the best of his works, is a telling examination of the relationship between money and morality. It recounts the story of the son of a bankrupt landowner, Frank Gresham, who is intent on marrying his beloved Mary Thorne despite her illegitimacy and apparent poverty. Frank`s ambitious mother and haughty aunt are set against the match, however, and push him to make a good marriage to a wealthy heiress. Only Mary`s loving uncle, Dr Thorne, knows of the fortune she is about to inherit - but believes she should be accepted on her own terms.
