Storyline

Sebastian's decline continues and there is little anyone seems able to do about it. He is terribly unhappy about his family situation and seems bent on destroying any relationships he may still have left. Soon he is sent down and Charles subsequently learns that Sebastian and Mr. Samgrass will be departing for a tour of Middle Eastern monasteries. Change comes for Charles himself when he decides not to return to Oxford but rather to pursue perfecting his talents as an artist. He attends an art school in Paris and hears little of Sebastian during these months. Throughout it all however, he remains loyal to his good friend despite Lady Marchmain's attempts to co-opt him.
