Part of content in Latest Blog Post widget

I use the Latest Blog Post widget in my aside second.

The problem is that the widget shows the whole text.

So if I insert a very long text, it's all rendered in the aside second.

 

Is there a solution to tell Orchard that it must show, for example, the first 100 characters and then a "read more" link?

You can override the shape template in your own theme, and modify the displayed text as you see fit. Enable the Shape Tracer to find out what alternates you can use.
