The book is well described by the phrase, “Drama of ordinary lives.” This book is set in a fictional region of Midlands, a fictional nineteenth-century town at the brink of modern changes. The Reform Bill promises to make tremendous and massive changes, but corruption and scandal are right around the corner. This book continues revolving around the unfurling of events and self-knowledge bit by bit.
