Can You Forgive Her?

Can You Forgive Her? (Palliser novels, #1)Can You Forgive Her? by Anthony Trollope

I'm reading like a Victorian. This 700+ page work has been too daunting for me to tackle, until now. I'm reading it in installments, four chapters a month, as it was originally published. The website Victorian Serial Novels has Can You Forgive Her? and a number of other Victorian novels presented in their original publication schedules.

Who knew that there was another English writer with a flair for silly character names. So far, Mr Cheeseacre is my favorite, but we're only 100 pages into the story!

"He was himself by no means a poor man, and he despised poverty in others. It was well that there should be poor gentry, in order that they might act as satellites to those who, like himself, had money."
