Sonia Brownell was a model for Julia in Orwell's most famous novel, she was 15 years younger than her husband, and after his death she was hounded and pilloried as a manipulative gold-digger who would stop at nothing to keep control of the literary legacy. But the truth about Sonia was altogether different.
