The author included spectacular amounts of detail from Victorian England, even to the details of the invention of photography. The story moves slowly, but if you love English novels of the Victorian period, it mimics them and improves on them. Dean thinks the ending could have been better, including an additional manuscript which includes a description of Glyver inheriting the estate from his exhiled position. Perhaps he would discover a document that would conclusively earn him the estate and allow him to evict Emily or be generous. Who knows?
