Overview

The internationally acclaimed romance for those who dare confront the horror of true love.

Rachel, an American biographer researching the life and work of Mary Shelley, is consumed by the escalating threads of her investigation. Shards of Shelley's creation are exhumed from the past. Aspects of Frankenstein are incised and ripped from the nineteenth century and transplanted into our own.

The archival records within Château de Chillon give some insight into a life long gone. It is, however, the contents of a document trunk that has remained unopened for generations that discloses what truly occurred in the idyllic Swiss village of Montreux to jolt the monster into existence.

Rachel is drawn into the centuries-old conversations as she attempts to discern fact from fiction, but she is repeatedly disrupted by a man of gigantic structure, of uncommon beauty, of intriguing origin.
