Alice Vavasour is the nominal heroine of this work. Central to the plot is her vacillation between two suitors, but this is overshadowed by the presence of the Pallisers. The book offers a clear-sighted view of the corrupt, shabby, hypocritical and sometimes noble sides of parliamentary life.

"Anthony Trollope knew more about women than any other novelist of his time" (Joanna Trollope)
"He is not a soothing writer at all, in fact he's rather subversive. Nobody gets away with anything in Trollope" (Victoria Glendinning)
"Trollope is wonderful, a major novelist, a joy... particularly admire his empathy with his characters, and the way in which he describes women...unique among male novelists, better even than Henry James, in his ability to enter the lives of women characters, and women on their own" (P.D. James)
"Pithy and pungent, almost like Jane Austen" (Amanda Craig)
With sympathy and care, Trollope observes the romances of two controversial heroines in the first of his Palliser novels
