They travelled widely, saw a great deal, and worked hard, quickly settling into the pattern of compan- The Life of George Eliot  ionship and work that would mark their rich productive lives together. They took part fully in each other’s projects, but not to the extent of hindering each other’s progress. Every day they read aloud to each other, both from their own manuscripts, and from the books they were reading. It was the beginning of an intimate reciprocal intellectual relationship. In March , the couple returned to England, fully prepared to be spurned for their unconventional relationship.

By  her fanatical evangelicalism had begun to subside; soon her faith would be shaken to pieces. That year Isaac was planning his marriage, and it was agreed that he would move to Griff and take over the -year-old The Life of George Eliot  Robert Evans’s duties as Newdigate’s agent. Mary Ann and her father would begin the search for a new house. It was, as Cross describes it, ‘a change almost amounting to a revolution in Miss Evans’s life’ (Life, p. ). On  March  they moved to a house in Foleshill Road on the rural outskirts of Coventry.

The first was with Dr Brabant himself, who invited Mary Ann to visit him in Devizes in , just after the wedding of Rufa  The Life of George Eliot and Charles Hennell. Flattered by the attentions of an old man who appears to have been frankly lascivious, she became intimate with him, and was smartly banished from the house by Brabant’s (blind) wife and sister-in-law. The second relationship was with a young painter (or picture-restorer) from Leamington who proposed to her in  after knowing her only a few days.
