English term or phrase: freckle-backed
Here is the term like this:" her connection with the no doubt freckle-backed Mr. Aberdeen is a great disppointment."

I wonder what "freckle-backed" is?

Thank you.

agree  Ken Cox: freckles on his back (which the narrator apparently finds distasteful) see http://www.nybooks.com/articles/20390

  -> Thanks a lot, Ken!

agree  niczav: I imagine that, given the 'no doubt', there was an earlier reference to Mr Aberdeen's freckled face.
