Trollope singled out Orely Farm for its successful combination of realistic and sensational effects which he felt to be the highest achievement of the novelist. The novel centers on a case of forgery and the anguish, guilt, and pathos of the central character, Lady Mason. Youthful marriage choices, middle-aged miarital crisis, and the moving love and loss of an elderly man revolve around the legal action and the complex portrayal of Lady Mason, who is both sympathetic and wily. The novel poses a standard of morality higher than that embodied in the practice of an English court of law. 421p.
