Read full description of the books:
Phineas Finn is an intelligent and very ambitious young man the only son of an Irish doctor. While studying with a London barrister so that he can be admitted to the bar himself Finn is approached by an acquaintance at his club and asked to stand for Parliament in the small borough where his family lives. Through a stroke of good luck he is successful and goes back to London as a member of Parliament.
He woos and loses several women, fights a duel over one of them (having to go to the Continent since dueling is illegal in England) and, most importantly, discovers just how insignificant and unimportant one member of the House of Commons can be. This is the story of his political and social awakening told against the backdrop of political reform and continued agitation in Ireland.
