Quite good 19th century novel

The Warden - David Skilton, Anthony Trollope

A 19th century novel about the Church and how it rewarded its personnel, about possible injustices and the legal battle to restore rights to the almspeople. It is also a satire and critical of Carlyle and Dickens and the Times newspaper.

I found it a little tedious as it's really a single-plot novel, a bit dragged out. I prefer Dickens and George Eliot.
