When Louis Trevelyan's young wife meets an old family acquaintance, his unreasonable jealousy of their friendship sparks a quarrel that leads to a brutal and tragic estrangement.
Often considered to be his masterpiece, Anthony Trollope's 1869 novel explores the themes of marriage, love, and the rights of women in 19th-century England.
With a cast of independent, forceful characters and lively subplots, Trollope creates a penetrating and often comic dissection of the mores of Victorian society.

A refreshingly up to date reading of a dark, psychological, Victorian tale of a marriage breakdown
- Mr. M. Green
Spoilt by mediocre narration
Only if I had a version of it narrated by Timothy West.
I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it yet. It came near the end.
Not if I can help it! He was reasonably good at the narrative but when it came to dialogue it was awful. The accent and inflections was totally wrong and spoilt the book. I came to see if there was one narrated by someone else to swap, but it is currently the only version of this book on Audible so I had no choice but to keep listening.
A lot of it was moving.
It's such a shame that Timothy West hasn't narrated this book as he has done a lot of Trollope's other books superbly.
