Christmas at Thompson Hall by Anthony Trollope


Monday, December 19 through Wednesday, December 21, 2022. Read by Karl Schmidt.

Anthony Trollope’s Victorian “comedy of errors” “Christmas at Thompson Hall” was a holiday tradition for many years on Chapter A Day. Not quite a “Christmas story”, it nonetheless is filled with the festivity and anxiety that accompanies the season. Mrs Brown is overjoyed. She hasn’t been home to England for the holidays in eight years. But nothing is cooperating with her… not the weather, not her husband, and not the strange man she just slathered with mustard plaster. Just how far will she go to get home in time for Christmas?
