Two years have passed and Charles and Julia are still in love, spending as much time together as possible. They are astounded to learn from Bridey that he is engaged to be married. Bridey's admonition of Julia's relationship and his refusal to bring his fiancée to Brideshead has a profound effect on her, however. Charles and Julia each decide to divorce their spouses and get married. Cordelia returns to Brideshead after several years volunteering in Spain during the Civil War. Charles learns from her of Sebastian since he last saw him and that he is now living in Tunis in a monastery. Written by garykmcd
