"The passionate and tempestuous life of Percy Bysshe Shelley is at the heart of this new novel.  Angel? Devil? radical? reformer? lover? cad? What was the truth about this legendary figure?
Born into a wealthy landowning family, he rejected his heritage and set out to improve the lives of those he saw suffering under poverty and injustice, but even more he was driven emotionally to self-destruction by forces which he could not understand.  One minute a loving husband, the next a straying lover; one time a serious philosopher, and then a soaring romantic; one minute he happily surrounded himself with chattering friends, the next he wandered mountaintops in search of solitude and peace."
