Mr Harding is a good man, the warden to an alms house which provides a peaceful home to twelve old men.
The young and zealous John Bold is also a good man, but he believes he sees in Harding's comfortable existence an injustice which must be exposed.
The law, the church and the self-righteous national press all have their say in the scandal that ensues, causing a crisis in the hearts and minds of many in the quiet country town of Barchester.
This is the first book in Anthony Trollope's "Barchester Chronicles".
