Having left England in the back of him, Lord Byron arrives at the shorelines of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, the place he meets the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Godwin and Claire Clairmont. 4 youth looking a brand new life.

All are dropped at lifestyles in that chuffed and haunted summer time of precise friendship, love, and story-telling; while in the course of a interval of stormy climate over the Alps, Mary writes 'Frankenstein'; and Byron writes 'The Vampyre', later plagiarised and released through his healthcare professional John William Polidori.

Based on their lonesome phrases within the letters and journals of Byron, Shelley, and Mary, the writer brings the reader contained in the Villa Diodati to vividly proportion on this planet of those top icons of the Romantic flow in the course of that well-known summer season in 1816.

"Browne's prose is fresh, transparent, and eloquent. the radical boasts a colourful, clean story-line within which Byron's poetry and tale are vividly dropped at existence.
A well-researched novel of Lord Byron and the lifetime of his shut, modern circle. tremendous for heritage buffs and drama fanatics alike." ----- THE BOOKLIFE PRIZE
