Miss Mackenzie (1865) by Anthony Trollope is the story of "a very unattractive old maid" as the author originally called her. But Trollope must have changed his mind in the writing, because the steadfast and sensible heroine comes across as highly sympathetic to the reader, and once again the subject of love is inescapable. Miss Mackenzie, a spinster long past her first bloom, with the sudden possibility of a fortune, is beset by suitors and personal choices. A deft exploration of money, love, and relationships by a master of sensibility, caricature, and the social mores of his time.
