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
They were the Romantic generation, famous and infamous, and in their short, extraordinary lives, they left a legacy of glamorous and often shocking legend. In PASSION the interwoven lives and vivid personalities of Byron, Shelley and Keats are explored through the eyes of the women who knew and loved them -- scandalously, intensely and sometimes tragically. From the salons of the Whig nobles and the penury and vitality of Grub Street, to the beauty and corruption of Venice and the carrion field of Waterloo, PASSION presents the Romantic generation in a new and dramatic light -- actors in a stormy history that unleashed the energies of the modern world.
