Dr. Wortle’s School

by Anthony Trollope. Dr. Wortle discovers that his most esteemed teacher at his school for boys, Mr. Peacocke, is not actually married to his wife, leaving the school and Dr. Wortle in a moral quandary. I’ve never read Trollope. It was charming. The ending of this book was so strange — Dr. Peacocke’s marital situation is resolved and the last 20 pages of the book find Dr. Wortle’s daughter engaged to a former student. I am too thick to see the connection.
