9780715641446: The Model Wife: Effie, Ruskin and Millais. Suzanne Fagence Cooper

Effie Gray, a Scottish beauty, was the heroine of a great Victorian love story. Married at nineteen to John Ruskin, she found herself trapped in a loveless and unconsummated union. When her husband invited his protege John Everett Millais away on holiday, Effie and Millais fell in love. She would inspire some of Millais' most haunting images, and embody Victorian society's fears about female sexuality. Effie risked everything by leaving Ruskin. She hoped to find fulfilment as Millais' wife, becoming a society hostess and manager of his studio, but controversy and tragedy continued to stalk her. Suzanne Fagence Cooper has gained exclusive access to Effie's family letters and diaries to reveal the reality behind the scandalous love-triangle. She shows the rise and fall of the Pre-Raphaelite circle from a new perspective, through the eyes of a woman who was intimately involved in the private and public lives of its two greatest figures. Effie's charm and ambition helped to shape the careers of both her husbands. The Model Wife is a compelling portrait of the extraordinary woman behind some of the most famous Pre-Raphaelite paintings.

Review:

'Effie Gray's story is extraordinary and Cooper feasts upon it with appetite...I cannot recommend Fagence Cooper's biography of Effie Gray more highly to anyone with a heart, a liking for a good read and an interest in things Victorian' Henrietta Garnett, The Literary Review 'This is an exceptional book about an exceptional trio and the exceptional families that formed them.' The Scotsman 'At last Effie Millais has been given her voice and it is a marvellous one... I couldn't put it down.' Linda Lear, author of Beatrix Potter 'Paints a charming picture of what life must have been like in the middle of the 19th century.' Adam Hart-Davis
