Dawn Montgomery reads chapters 16 and 17 of Frances Milton Trollope's "The Domestic Manners of the Americans", published in 1832 following her trip to America in 1827. Fanny Trollope wrote several strong novels of social protest: Jonathan Jefferson Whitlaw about the evils of slavery (the first anti-slavery novel which influenced Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin) and Michael Armstrong: Factory Boy, the first industrial novel to be published in Britain. A contemporary of Jane Austen - although they never met - and the mother of Anthony Trollope, author of Barchester Chronicles and other celebrated books, Fanny's writing supported her husband and children for many years.
