Overview

KEPT IN THE DARK gives us a lean, psychological portrait of the destructive effect of past secrets on a marriage. The husband is George Western, self-willed and fatally proud. His wife, Cecilia, possesses a complicated mixture of pride and submissiveness that leads her inexorably to deceit. These difficulties are compounded by hypocritical friends and the reappearance of Cecilia's egotistical former suitor, Sir Francis Geraldine. KEPT IN THE DARK is one of the finest examples of Trollope's mastery of the Victorian novel.
