Angelmonster

By Veronica Bennett

"I saw no one but him, dreaming or waking. I fell in love so madly, I almost did not recognize it as love. It was madness and nothing else."

The story of Mary Wollstonecraft and Percy Bysshe Shelley is one of the most famous love stories of all time – passionate yet volatile, heart-warming yet heart-breaking – and the backdrop to the writing of the world-famous novel Frankenstein.

Reviews

'Those in search of a good story need look no further.' The Guardian

'A haunting story, beautifully written and rich in historical detail.' The Bookseller

'Captures all the bliss and folly of Mary's disastrous surrender to love, and the sorrowful steps by which she became Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein and the young widow of a great Romantic poet... Bennett's take on this legendary night [at Byron's villa] is as silky and confident as the rest of her novel... Succeeds in conveying the tumbling emotions of [Mary's] forced maturity and her intense, ill-omened love.' New York Times
