Mary’s life began in
shadow. Unwanted and overlooked, her desire was to make something of
her existence. So how would meeting a young poet change her path
forever? Scandal. Passion. Desire. Mary’s choices were clear – but would
she ever be free of her loneliness? Tony Thompson’s enthralling novel
explores Mary Shelley’s early life and the famous summer she spent with
Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, John Polidori and her stepsister Claire
Clairmont, which inspired her iconic novel Frankenstein.
