Strong-minded Cecilia Holt cannot bring herself to tell her fiance of a previous engagement. Following their marriage, however, her husband, as as proud and self-willed as his wife, discovers the truth, and the marriage seems headed for disaster.

Kept in the Dark Summary

Kept in the Dark by Anthony Trollope

"Kept in the Dark" is a subtle study of a man's jealousy and indignation. Unlike Trevelyan in "He Knew He Was Right," who is wrongly convinced of he wife's past. Before her marriage to Western, Cecilia Holt was engaged to the spiteful, conceited Sir Francis Geraldine. As she is unable to find the right moment to confide this to her husband, Western discovers the fact from Geraldine himself, and in a fit of wounded pride deserts his young wife, refusing to hear the truth from her lips.
