author: Veronica Bennett

Passionate young love. Poetic history. The start of the most enduring horror story of our time.

In the spring of 1814, poet Percy Shelley enters the life of young Mary Godwin like an angel of deliverance. Seduced by his radical and romantic ideas, she flees with him and her stepsister to Europe, where they forge a hardscrabble life while mingling with other free-spirited artists and poets. Frowned on by family and society, persecuted by gossip, and plagued by jealousy, Mary becomes haunted by freakish imaginings and hideous visions. As tragedy strikes, not once but time and again, Mary begins to realize that her dreams have become nightmares, and her angel . . . a monster. Now the time has finally come for the young woman who would become Mary Shelley to set her monster free.

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.
