Is strange both above and below stairs and Will's treatment by his hosts is surprisingly offhand Most perplexing of all however is the appearance of another painter his childhood friend and now rival Tom Girtin While Tom is welcomed into the aristocratic circle Will finds few allies As it becomes harder to ignore the whispe.
