The Small House at Allington - Julian Thompson, Anthony Trollope

Oh, that Mr. Crosbie is a douchebag. He needs a comeuppance in the worst sort of way.


Also, Trollope uses this expression:


“Psha, mamma; pray don’t go on in that Goody Twoshoes sort of way.”


I had no idea that the expression "Goody Twoshoes" was as old as all that. 


And, he named one of his characters "Major Fiasco," which made me laugh out loud.
