John Ruskin, the esteemed nineteenth-century art historian and author of "Stones of Venice," in 1858 fell deeply in love with a young Irish girl named Rose La Touche. What ensued is the stuff of tragedy: forbidden love, brain fever, stolen moments, lost fortune, misunderstanding, reconciliation, and tragic loss. Using materials from Ruskin's and Rose's letters, as well as autobiography, books, and other writings, "Ruskin's Rose" retells the dramatic true story of this critical time in Ruskin's life.

The tale begins in Venice, a year after Rose's death. Ruskin had fled there to escape his pain, but the dangerous romance of Venice's canals and bridges only intensified his emotions. He found himself unable to leave but without a reason to stay--until the day he stumbled across the painting of fifteenth-century artist Vittore Carpaccio and found Rose in the fairy-tale portraits.

Set in Victorian London and Venice, this tantalizing book reveals what Ruskin discovered-- about himself and about love-- during the final months of 1876 and into early 1877. It will touch the heart of every reader.
