Three years after their elopement and marriage, Elizabeth and Robert Browning welcomed the birth of their son Pen, and mourned the death of Robert’s mother. Struggling to raise her beloved husband’s spirits and prove to him that love does not die, Elizabeth considers revealing to Robert the sonnets she wrote during their 18 month long romance of letters. Elizabeth shares those letters with you, the story of their courtship and the sonnets they inspired.
