For this last tale Trollope calls back some of his best-loved characters. Johnny Eames unsuccessfully tries to woo Lily Dale; Major Henry Grantly falls in love with Grace Crawley much against the wishes of the Archdeacon. But Trollope’s greastest surprise is reserved for one of his favourite characters: the chapter describing Mr Thimble’s discovery of Mrs Proudie’s dead body, upright, one arm clasped around the bedpost, with her eyes wide open, is a tour-de-force. Trollope said ‘I regard this as the best novel I have written... there is a true savour of English life all through the book’.
