LoveReading View on Angelmonster

Sixteen-year-old step sisters Mary and Jane are bored. Longing for romance they dream of attracting the attention of a rich and handsome man who will take them away to somewhere foreign and interesting. When the poet Shelley walks into their father’s shop, Mary immediately falls head over heels in love. He is everything she has imagined and more. But Mary and Shelley’s flight to Europe does not bring the happiness she has hoped for. Tragedy and romantic are brilliantly combined in this powerful story based on the life of Mary Shelley.


Angelmonster Synopsis

Mary and her sister Jane have always longed for a handsome young poet to whisk them away from their mundane life. Then, in the spring of 1814, Percy Shelley walks into their father's shop, like an angel of deliverance.
