Review

I loved Jude Morgan's Passion, which seems to me to achieve exactly what historical fiction is for, namely, to illuminate the past to the present...it's compellingly well-written, and stylish with it (Joanna Trollope, Observer)

'I loved Jude Morgan's Passion, which seems to me to achieve exactly what historical fiction is for, namely, to illuminate the past to the present...it's compellingly well-written, and stylish with it' Joanna Trollope, Observer (Joanna Trollope, Observer)

'I can't remember when I last read a book that was so elegantly and stylishly written and yet at the same time so absolutely engrossing and compelling' Diane Pearson (legendary editor at Transworld, bestselling author and Chair of the RNA) (Diane Pearson (legendary editor at Transworld, bes)

'Once Passion gathers pace, it becomes unputdownable. Stunningly well researched, its multi-stranded epic qualities can't fail to hook and seduce' Guardian, 13/11/04 (Guardian)

'It's hard to describe this huge, ambitious historical novel without coming over like a Hollywood film pitch: 'the Romantic poets - and the women who loved them', but in depicting the lives of four women who were romantically involved with Byron, Shelley and Keats, Morgan has pulled off an epic feat both of imagination and of research... Morgan takes us deep into the souls of these extraordinary women, filling us with admiration for their defiance of convention' Marie Claire, August 2004 issue (Marie Claire)

This is an engrossing tale that will charm and enthral readers in equal measure (Hot Stars and Star magazine)

'PASSION is a wonderful book - rich, authentic, beautifully written and, yes, passionate. It tells familiar stories of famous men and women from fresh angles, breathing life into them rather like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein did to his monster. I have not been better entertained all year' Tracy Chevalier (Tracy Chevalier)

'Beautifully written, with fresh metaphors and convincing voices' Tracy Chevalier, Observer (Tracy Chevalier, Observer)

'A treat for all lovers of historical fiction' Sunday Express magazine, 12/6/05 (Sunday Express magazine)

'Entertaining, well written and very informative' Sainsbury's magazine, June 2005 (Sainsbury's magazine)

'A page-turning doorstop of a novel, combining scandal, tragedy and, of course, passion' You magazine, 8 May 2005 (You magazine)

'A big book in both style and ambition: a flamboyant, confident and endlessly inventive novel about Shelley, Byron, Keats - and wives, girlfriends, babies, sisters, travels, debts, terrors, conquests, heartbreaks. You would hardly think it could be done, but Morgan has captured not just the fabulous aura of these Romantic icons, but also their human particularity, and woven their stories together in a manner that is both entertaining and elegant' Hilary Mantel, Guardian, 16/6/05 (Hilary Mantel, Guardian)

'This is a sensational story of money, marriage and, above all, high-wrought emotion... A sprightly, intelligent romp through chartered territory' Kirkus Reviews 1/8/05 (Kirkus Reviews)

'Carefully researched, deeply imagined and gorgeously written novel... Dense, empathetic, detailed portraits of each woman lift them above their iconography... Morgan brings a fascinating past to brilliant light' (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description

Jude Morgan, author of THE KING'S TOUCH, brings the world of the Romantic generation to life in all its supercharged emotion, individualism, violence and sensuality
