Description
Married at 19 to John Ruskin, the leading art critic of Victorian England, the beautiful and intelligent young socialite Effie Gray found herself trapped in a loveless, unconsummated union after Ruskin rejected her on their wedding night. Then on a trip to Scotland she met John Everett Millais, Ruskin's protégé, and fell passionately in love with him. In a scandalous act of self-determination that rattled the foundations of their society, Effie left Ruskin, had their marriage annulled, and entered into a long, happy union with Millais. In Suzanne Fagence Cooper's hands, this passionate love story becomes an insightful window on the work of both Ruskin and Millais, with Effie emerging as a key figure in their artistic development.

"Suzanne Fagence Cooper's meticulously researched and yet touchingly personal memoir of Effie Gray is a joy to read. We know so much about Ruskin and Millais—so little about the most influential woman in their lives. Miserably married to the first and triumphantly to the second, Effie's story is emblematic of the struggle of Victorian women who had to survive without the outlets, opportunities or rights that were afforded to men. Her trail-blazing life makes a wonderful, rich book."—Emma Thompson
