This novel in verse tells the story of young Mary Shelley, beginning around the time she meets Percy Bysshe Shelley, and running through to the time of his death (spoiler!!!).

I thought the "in verse" part was fairly well done, and I liked learning more about her life. She was an exceptional person, surviving prejudice and discrimination and maltreatment and a LOT of death.
