by Owen Robertson

It is 1816, the Year without a Summer, and the greatest ghost story of all time is about to begin. But in order for that to happen, Mary must work through her self-doubts of womanhood, her place as a writer, her conflict with her dead mother, and Claire, always Claire there in her life, not to mention Percy, the ultimate bad boy Lord Byron, and the boyish advances of Dr. John Polidori. Tucked away in Byron’s villa in Switzerland, these five people are present at the inception of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly’s 

Frankenstein. Discover how a young girl becomes an independent woman, a free thinker for the ages, navigates a complicated love life, and establishes herself as one of the greatest storytellers of all time.
