Storyline

The Rossettis return from honeymoon to a proposal from Millais; to preserve the Brotherhood they should all move into his house. They agree, out of financial need, as Ruskin has dropped Lizzie as his pupil - on the grounds of her marriage - in favour of a very young girl. Annie, dumped by her lord, turns down proposals from Hunt and Fred, vowing to bag herself another peer. She does, however, obtain hush money from Hunt not to publish his saucy love letters to her. A slighted Fred resolves only to tell the truth, starting by telling Lizzie (whom he still loves) he believes her husband aims to start an affair with Jane, his latest model and betrothed of Morris. Lizzie overdoses on laudanum and dies. Fred lies to her family about the note she left, claiming it was an accident to spare their feelings. Rossetti is tormented, believing he did not love Lizzie enough. All the same he does rescue his love poems to her from her grave. They will sell after all. Hunt returns to the Middle East ...
