The Absentee by Maria Edgeworth

Lord Colambre can see that his pretentious mother's social ambitions earn her nothing but contempt from London's fashionable society. And it's come to his attention that his father's finances have suffered a good deal underwriting his wife's extravagances.

Anxious about his family's fortunes, Colambre departs Cambridge for Ireland to assess his father's estates firsthand. There he finds his absent father's tenants sorely put upon by the estate's agent. Colambre races to stop his father from both destroying the lives of local peasants and throwing their family into ruins, but there's one condition—one he's sure will make his mother truly unhappy.
