Penniless and disgraced, Adelaide Wentworth is feeling
rather desperate. With nothing left to lose, she and her
sister, Louisa, flee to Lake Geneva with Adelaideâ€™s lover,
the infamous poet Julian Estes. There, Louisa hopes to
persuade Bayard Sonnierâ€”celebrated writer and her former
loverâ€”to advance Julianâ€™s career. He is their last hope for
At the Villa Diodatiâ€”the place that inspired the writing of
Frankenstein sixty years earlierâ€”Louisa plots to rekindle
her affair with Bayard, while Adelaide hopes to restore her
fading love for Julian by being the muse he needs.
But soon, secrets are revealed, passions ignited, and hidden
talents discovered. Adelaide begins to imagine a different
life. Confused, she turns to Giovanni Calinaâ€”Bayardâ€™s
assistant and a man with his own secrets and deep
resentmentsâ€”and the two form a dangerous alliance. No one
leaves unscathed in this richly imagined, emotionally
nuanced tale of passion, ambition, inspiration, and redemption.
