Books by Joanna Trollope

It's not surprising that Joanna Trollope became a writer, especially considering her family history. She's the fifth-generation niece of Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope. While working as a teacher, Trollope began writing in the evenings as a way to keep herself entertained after her children had gone to bed. By 1980, her first book, Eliza Stanhope, was released, and she had become a full-time writer. Trollope's latest novel, Daughters-In-Law, is out this week. Photo credit: Barker Evans
