Phineas Finn, a handsome young man of 23, comes to England to make his fortune in parliamentary politics. But despite all his aspirations, Finn is haunted by ethical questions as his personal convictions conflict with his duty towards his party. Loyalty versus honor, love versus money, and privacy versus prominence: our eponymous hero faces a variety of dilemmas as he navigates his way through the House of Commons.
The second installment of Trollope's celebrated Palliser series, Phineas Finn is a delightful and humorous look at the complexity of human relationships and the politics surrounding the Second Reform Bill of the 1860s.

The reason Trollope 2 centuries later, is still so relevant, is politics, and love, and human nature do not change much. A lot of modern books promise much, and give little. This is a gentle blockbuster, very apt to make the listener, listen to the wee hours of the morning. The characters will stay with you, and like a journey to a much loved holliday of yore, years hence you will remember and return. But there is more I think we visit them again, in one of the later Palliser novels. Timothy West, as the narrator, can do aged Duke, or 17 year old girl, with truely convincing accomplishment!
