it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

I love Trollope and have a personal goal of reading all of his books. This was the second one i read after returning to reading his work earlier this fall after a gap of several years. I had forgotten how much I love Trollope till I started reading. What I love the most is how much his work, produced in the time in history of which he writes, tells us exactly what England was like at the time, the class system, the yearly incomes, the marriages that could make or break a family. I love this stuff. It's just so different than the U.S. where your destiny is not tied to that of your ancestors, that I find this all pretty fascinating.

That being said, I'm not interested in Trollope's forays into politics; I love the human side of the stories, most especially the love stories.

Happy to have read it and now I'm on to Ralph The Heir!
