Mary Shelley is exceedingly famous as the author of Frankenstein, but this work isnt known at all and wasnt even published until 1959. With good reason. The story is that Mathildas father leaves England after the death of his wife and doesnt return until she is 16 whereupon he falls in love with her. He confesses it to her and then kills himself. (view spoiler)[ hot incestuous sex scenes here, this isnt a book by Virginia Andrews) (hide spoiler)].

The story is that Mathildas father leaves England after the death of his wife and doesnt return until she is 16 whereupon he falls in love with her. He confesses it to her and then kills himself. (view spoiler)[ hot incestuous sex scenes here, this isnt a book by Virginia Andrews) (hide spoiler)]. Mathilda is consumed with unhappiness and making financial arrangements for a secure future, fakes her own suicide and taking the money, moves to a secluded cottage on the Yorkshire moors with only a servant for company. Her situation, the loneliness and the depressing view of the future and possibly the bleak, treeless, windswept moors get to her and she decides to really kill herself. Matilda asks her only friend, a poet to make it a romantic suicide à deux and join her in drinking the poisoned beverages she has prepared. Eloquently, not wanting to die himself, he persuades her to live. But she gets consumption and dies anyway, happy that it is a natural death and so doesnt spoil her chances of being reunited with her father in the happy hereafter. The father whose ardour for her was that of a lover, not a parent. And the daughter knows that and this desiring of with her father can only mean that she returns this unnatural affection and is looking forward to an eternity in her lover-fathers arms. Absolutely dire story, but the writing was ok. Read March 2011. Reviewed 2016. ...more

About the Author

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) was born in London, to her father the writer William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, an influential social campaigner who died 11 days after the birth of her daughter. Marys early life was unconventional and by the age of 16 she eloped with the then-married Percy Bysshe Shelley. Amongst their friends were Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Lord Byron, the latter of whom offered the challenge to Mary to write a ghost story which later became Frankenstein.
