A QUESTION OF PROPERTY
He'd been a mayor, a merchant, a knight and an alderman. When
Sir Joseph Mason, aged seventy, married a woman forty five years
younger than him, he became a father again. Sir Joseph was also the
owner of a large estate named Groby Park in Yorkshire. This he
entrusted to the son of his first marriage, Joseph Mason, Esq.
With his clever and bright young wife, Sir Joseph lived a quiet
life at Orley Farm. But then, suddenly, he died.
The will was read.
To his chagrin, Joseph Mason Esq. discovers that the will has a
codicil, in Lady Mason's handwriting, bequeathing Orley Farm to his
Joseph Mason, Esquire, -- a base and greedy fellow -- insists
that Orley Farm should rightfully be his -- and he sues.
The Orley Farm Case is the result.
With a delightful cast of characters, a complex plot, and a
satisfying climax, "Orley Farm" is surely one of the best novels
written by a Victorian.
