From the acclaimed author Sharon Dogar comes a reimagining of Mary Shelley's young adulthood: her passionate love affair, her tragedies and her creation of the greatest Gothic science fiction novel of them all: Frankenstein.
1814: Two 16-year-old stepsisters run away with a married man. The results are devastating and the ripples will be felt for centuries. This is the incredible story of Mary Shelley – radical, rebellious and entranced. It is the story of a young woman who defies tradition and society, and who draws upon the monstrous elements of her own life to create the most memorable monster of them all. Celebrating 200 years since the publication of Frankenstein, acclaimed writer Sharon Dogar brings to life the passion, tragedy and forbidden love of its teenage author.
