This review is from: Young Romantics: The Shelleys, Byron and Other Tangled Lives (Paperback)
This was as gripping a read as any novel. Daisy Hay has managed to combine her meticulous research with a writing style that kept me turning the pages always fascinated by what the characters would do next. Although I knew it was coming i was thoroughly shocked when Shelly died. Although it is the men, (apart from Mary of course) that are the well known driving forces of the Romantics Hay confidently brings to life the women behind the men in particular, Claire, Shelleys sister in law who is shown as a truely remarkable woman. Hay draws out the personalities, relationships and lives of this group of people with such panache that their stories will remain with me for a long time.
