Description - Passion by Jude Morgan

Theirs was a world of obsession, genius, and above all In the turbulent years of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, three poets Byron, Shelley, and Keats come to prominence, famous and infamous, for their vivid personalities, and their glamorous, shocking, and sometimes tragic lives. In this electrifying novel, those lives are explored through the eyes of the women who knew and loved them intensely, scandalously.Four women from widely different backgrounds are linked by a sensational fate. Mary Shelley: the gifted daughter of gifted parents, for whom passion leads to exile, loss, and a unique fame. Lady Caroline Lamb: born to fabulous wealth and aristocratic position, who risks everything for the ultimate love affair. Fanny Brawne: her quiet, middle-class girlhood is transformed and immortalized by a disturbing encounter with genius. Augusta Leigh: the unassuming poor relation who finds herself flouting the greatest of all taboos.With the originality, richness, and daring of the poets themselves, "Passion" presents the Romantic generation in a new and unforgettable light."
