Anthony Trollope was a British writer of the Victorian period. He was very prolific, writing 47 novels, 42 short stories and five travel books. He is primarily known for his “Barsetshire” series of novels, including the books “The Warden” and “Barchester Towers”. It is held that his satiric novel, “The Way We Live Now” is his masterpiece.

Today’s story, Malachi’s Cove takes place in Cornwall, and is based around a spot of beach that is an actual place. I can just see the author discover this interesting Cornish cove, and begin to erect the scaffoldings of a story around it.

And now, Malachi’s Cove, by Anthony Trollope.
