"She will trust her mother's judgment in this as she had always trusted it in all things". This is from a book. Why is the Past Perfect used here? This is the reason why she will trust her mother, so I think the Present Perfect should be used in this sentence.

    I’m voting to close this question because the original text is She would trust her mother's judgment in this as she had always trusted it in all things. The reason it's wrong here is probably that the cited text was mis-transcribed by some non-Anglophone typesetter making up some TEFL study materials. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica May 21 at 13:49
