Sir Harry at their first greeting declined to shake hands with him, and called him Captain Hotspur. Captain Hotspur," he said, "in a word, understand that there must be no further question of a marriage between you and my daughter. Sir Harry, before he had left Humblethwaite for London in October, had heard enough of his cousin's sins to make him sure that the match must be opposed with all his authority. Indeed he had so felt from the first moment in which George had begun to tell him of what had occurred at Airey Force. He had never thought that George Hotspur would make a fitting husband for his daughter.

Sir Harry bore the blow bravely, though none who do not understand the system well can conceive how the natural grief of the father was increased by the disappointment which had fallen upon the head of the house. But the old man bore it well, making but few audible moans, shedding no tears, altering in very little the habits of life; still spending money, because it was good for others that it should be spent, and only speaking of his son when it was necessary for him to allude to those altered arrangements as to the family property which it was.

Sir Harry understanding this, and having seen in these last days something as he thought of too close a cousinly friendship, was anxious that Lord Alfred should come and settle everything. If Lord Alfred should be successful, all danger would be at an end, and the cousin might come again and do what he liked with the coverts. She understood well that from her, as heiress of the House of Humblethwaite, a double obedience was due to her father, – the obedience of a child added to that which was now required from her as the future transmitter of honours of the house.

What could have happened to dear Trollope at or about the time of his writing Sir Harry H. of H, there's no knowing....a mystery why this story is steeped in such utter hopelessness and consequent despair......a true mystery....that made me quite sad.....why would he depict so great an obstinacy which ends up destroying a family that could otherwise have survived bigger ills, particularly when there seemed to be so much togetherness and deep love in them?????? P:S: I geatly enjoyed the writing itself, specially the asides and some of the more "humorous" comments.

I thought this was going to be a story of redemption,which bothered me, but I could have handled it better than what happened. It was hard to believe that a young girl would be so insanely self sacrificing to someone so undeserving, especially since she hardly knew him. She cooked up a fantasy in her head built on stubbornness and prayer and couldn't let go of it. I have seen Trollope create this kind of woman before and they always frustrate me. I hope they don't really exist in real life.

"Sir Harry Hotspur of Humblethwaite" is a novel that is more depressing than most Anthony Trollope I have read. I am a great fan of this author, but never read anything that does not have at least a glimmer of hope at its ending, never mind a "happy ending." Although most of Trollope's other novels contain many sad or trying circumstances for the characters, usually the protagonists fight against their bad fate and win either material or moral victories.
In "SIr Harry" the main theme is that someone who is born a "gentleman" is not necessarily a moral or ethical person. The tragedy in this story develops because an upper-class man is left without a male heir on the death of his son, and leaves his considerable property to his daughter. However, under the prevailing rules, the daughter is expected to marry a titled aristocrat and hand over her inheritance to him. The only man who offers is a scoundrel. Nevertheless, the hapless young woman thinks she loves him and disaster results. This novel is an indictment of the class system in Trollope's time. But since none of the characters are able to evade the sad fate that comes from blind adherence to the accepted rules, everyone is unhappy. So is the reader. Missing in this story is one character who might have challenged the system or risen above it to give us hope of the future. This happens in other Trollope novels but not here. Too bad!

For Trollope fans, it is worth reading if only for the contrast to his greater works.

The conflict between Sir Harry and his daughter over a worthless suitor could have been written yesterday. Trollope's descriptions of the father's devotion and pain, the daughter's struggle for independence and blindness toward her lover's flaws, are timeless.

Like Small House there is no happy ending...it is a warning and more people should heed it. It is worth the sorrow for the lesson and the prose, but you have been warned.

Enjoyable but I found Emily Hotspur aggravating.
Although this is not one of Trollope's better known novels, a group I belong to recommended it. The many twists and turns and character insights made it a thoroughly enjoyable read.
