Definitely a very interesting story. I liked how Cooper tried to give the story from everyone's point of view and didn't quote the reference letters TOO extensively, though a few direct quotations certainly would not have hurt here and there. Overall, I liked it and genuinely felt as though I got to know these historical figures.
Personally, I love pre-Raphaelite art, and Millais' art, being one of the most popular artists of his time, is especially interesting when you have his history and familial stories to augment it.
It's definitely a must for any fan of art, history, or love stories.
