This striking story is dominated by the heroic John Scarborough, a wealthy squire who, with almost superhuman energy, contrives from his deathbed to defeat the hated law of entail. Seeking to bequeath his estate to the worthier of his two sons, in his pursuit of justice he subjects them to a testing examination, baffles the lawyers, and scandalizes society. The social world also comes under Trollope's ironic gaze. His searching treatment of the various codes governing courtship and marriage, money-lending, frustration of youth and the sadness of age.
