    5. The first of the so called Palliser novels, this long novel chronicles three love affairs, told almost exclusively from the woman s point of view Its strength lies in the complexity and appeal of its principal characters they are not faced with simple choices but with all the bumps and warts of potential marital partners, and although the reader may side with one choice or another, by the conclusion we have three marriages which may or may not work out I was totally absorbed others may find drag [...]
