Through the Tempests Dark and Wild: A Story of Mary Shelley, Creator of “Frankenstein”
Sharon Darrow (au); Angela Barrett (il)
Long before Mary Shelley created her Gothic masterpiece “Frankenstein,” she told spine-tingling fireside tales of lost loves & drowned sailors. She also shared true stories of a girl endlessly drawn to her mother’s grave, & of a girl whose father had forgotten all he once held dear. Born to 2 writers, Mary struggled to find her own voice. Then, when she was 14, she was sent to live with family friends. The two years Mary spent with them affected both her life & her writing. In their sympathetic company, she resolved to become true to herself & to the memory of her mother, a woman whose spirit haunted her more than any created ghost. “This is a rich tapestry of stories within stories -- those told, those written, & more extraordinary, those lived.” Illus.
