Charles Ryder finds that he and his men are relocated to the grounds of Brideshead Castle. Charles knows the place well and he recalls a time 20 years before when he met Lord Sebastian Flyte, the second son of Lord Marchmain and for whom Brideshead was home. It was in his third term at Oxford that he and Sebastian became great friends and for Charles, a time when he matured and gained a greater appreciation for life. He soon became part of Sebastian's group of friends including such characters as the flamboyant Anthony Blanche and Boy Mulcaster. During the long holiday, Charles finds himself living at home with his somewhat eccentric father, with no money and little to do. He is saved however when Sebastian asks him to come to Brideshead for a visit. There, he meets Sebastian's sister Julia for the first time. Written by garykmcd See less
