Can You Forgive Her? is a novel by Anthony Trollope, first published in serial form in 1864 and 1865.
It is the first of six novels in the Palliser series, also known as the Parliamentary Novels.
The novel follows three parallel stories of courtship and marriage and the decisions of three women: Alice Vavasor, her cousin Glencora Palliser, and her aunt Arabella Greenow.
Early on, Alice asks the question "e;What should a woman do with her life?"e; This theme repeats itself in the dilemmas faced by the other women in the novel.
Lady Glencora and her husband Plantagenet Palliser recur in the remainder of the series. (Wikipedia)
