Trollope's alternate title, ""The Chronicle of a Winter at Dillsborough"", is far more descriptive of the book, which has

It is also a charming love-story, centring on sweet-natured Rachel Ray and her suitor Luke Rowan, whose battle to wrest control over Baslehurst's brewery involves a host of typically Trollopian local characters.
