    A writer such as Trollope can take a reader and place herlikely him considerably less likely into a groove from page one and transport seamlessly through a three hundred or so pages to, invariably, a neat, satisfying resolution When on song, as she is in this novel, the reader will lose all track of time as this skilled practitioner inveigles the reader to care about her protagonists to the degree that there is always an unsatisfactory sigh emanating as the b...
