An Untimely Frost by Ted Morrisey


Blurb: In the novel An Untimely Frost, or The Authoress, set in 1830s London, the American author Jefferson Wheelwright seeks out the reclusive English novelist Margaret T. Haeley, creator of Dunkelraum's monster and widow of poet Stephen Haeley. The story was inspired by Washington Irving's rumored courtship of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. The book also includes the author's essay "Researching the Rhythms of Voice" and discussion questions.


Note from Samie Sands: "This book had me gripped from the very first page - I absolutely love Ted Morrisey's use of descriptive language. Everything he writes is so vivid, I could picture it in my head. The plot and characters are wonderful and charming - a must read for....pretty much everyone! 5/5 Stars."
