There are many metaphors in Barchester Towers but most notably is that of the deformed females that are there. In particular there is Madeline Neroni. What the author was attempting to show as a metaphor is that domestic violence is a hidden disease that deforms society and keeps those who suffer from it silent and in pain. They view her deformity as somehow conducive to her lack of morals when in reality, it is her husband who is the immoral one.
