Mary Harper and Solomon Everta, of the Northcoast Book Discussion Group, examine Elizabeth Barrett Browning - her strict upbringing; growing up in Jamaica; hiding her marriage from her family. Mary reads passages from Sonnets from the Portuguese - poems written during Elizabeth Barrett Browning's courtship with Robert Browning. In fact, Barrett Browning waited three years after they'd married before sharing Sonnets from the Portuguese with Robert Browning.
