Comments¶ “This is the novel of which Charles Reade afterwards took the plot and made it into a play [Shilly Shally]. I have always thought it to be one of the worst novels I have written, and almost to have justified that dictum that a novelist after fifty should not write love-stories” - Trollope’s Autobiography.
