Veronica Bennett’s lush reimagining of the life of Mary Shelley — on the eve of her authorship of the classic gothic novel Frankenstein — is a gripping story of love and obsession.
"Captures all the bliss and folly of Mary Shelley’s disastrous surrender to love, and the sorrowful steps by which she became the author of FRANKENSTEIN." -- NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
Cassandra's Sister (Hardback)
"Blends romance and tart courtship commentary successfully enough to create new Austen fans, gratify existing ones, and send both back to the stacks for more." — Booklist (starred review)
