Kept in the Dark is one of Trollopes lesser-known efforts, published just before his death in 1882. Like the brilliant He Knew He Was Right, it examines a husbands jealous suspicions of his wife, though here the suspicion is of past infidelity rather than present. After their marriage, George Western discovers that his wife Cecilia was engaged to Sir Francis Geraldine- because she never revealed this to Western, he feels indignantly that he has been kept in the dark and leaves her.Though not as powerful as He Knew He Was Right (one of my favorite Trollope novels), Kept in the Dark shows Trollopes penetrating insight and sharp characterization, particularly in the person of Miss Altifiorla, a selfish former friend of Cecilia Westerns who is instrumental in revealing her secret to her husband.
