Description

With a famous mother like Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Godwin has plenty of ideas of her own, if anyone would bother to take her writing seriously. But ever since her mother died, Mary’s spent a rather drab life living above her father’s modest bookstore, waiting for something extraordinary that will help her compose a work worthy of her parentage—and impress her rakishly handsome (and super-secret) beau, Percy Shelley.

Ada Byron knows a thing or two about famous parents.

With a famous mother like Mary Wollstonecraft, Mary Godwin has plenty of ideas of her own, if anyone would bother to take her writing seriously. But ever since her mother died, Mary’s spent a rather...
