This is the 5th book in the Barsetshire Chronicles. Very few of the characters from any of the previous novels make appearances in this story. At first it's a bit difficult to get attached to the new characters but once you do the story is enjoyable. As with the other books in this series, the main plot is concerned with several sets of young lovers of varying classes in Britain in the mid 1860's. It's quite clear that the author doesn't think much of the class system. Also, just like the other novels, there are many chapters of description and distraction that have nothing to do with the main story. If the book was written today his editor would have probably asked him to cut the book by 50 pages. If you've read the first four books in the series it's worth reading. If you haven't read the first four I would read them first. If you make it through those you'll have to read this one too to finish up the series.
