It’s the system as I hates, and you, Mr Finn. Well good-bye, Sir.
Millais reproduced from the first edition published by Virtue and Company in 1869.

This is the second book of the Palisser series, being the sequel of Can You Forgive Her?

Phineas Finn is a young Irishman who becomes a member of the English parliament. Due to his position, be comes in love with several woman: Lady Laura Standish, Mary Jones – a childhood sweetheart and Violet Effingham.

This books remind me of some other books, such as: The History of Tom Jones by Henry Fielding; the duel scenes as portrayed by Alexandre Dumas in The Three Musketeers.

The sequel of this book, Phineas Redux, is the fourth novel in the series.

There is a TV Series The Pallisers (1974– ) made based on the Palliser series.
