Storyline

Charles is rescued from his dull existence at home when Sebastian asks him to come to Brideshead. They spend an idyllic summer and have the run of the castle. Eventually, Charles meets Sebastian's older brother, Lord Brideshead - known to all as Bridey - and his youngest sister Cordelia. Charles doesn't quite understand the family's Roman Catholic beliefs however. He is pleased when Sebastian informs him that, despite their penurious state, they are off to Venice to visit his father. Lord Marchmain has lived there for many years with his mistress, Cara, and has very rarely returned to Brideshead. Charles drinks in the beauty of Venice and particularly its art. He also learns why Lord Marchmain refuses to set foot in England. Written by garykmcd
