Trollope is always a delight to read! His characters are well-drawn -- each with many virtues and usually with many small vices. He is also a master at delineating Victorian morals and manners -- and in this case (as in many others) showing not only hypocrisy but something worse: confusing conventional morality with morality. The story moves swiftly, but not without witty and emotional diversions.
