As this had no synopsis I thought I should add one:

More than 175 years ago, Mary Shelley introduced the world to an arrogant scientist and his unhallowed creation in her classic Frankenstein. In this novel, Theodore Roszak writes the tale from the point of view of the woman who was the scientist's love interest.

Abandoned by her soldiering father to an impoverished gipsy family, apprenticed into midwifery as a child, rescued and raised by a remarkable noblewoman of Geneva, Elizabeth Lavenza was destined to be more than a foster sister to Victor Frankenstein. She became his soul mate and lover, the partner who led him on a quest into the shadowy realms of alchemical lore - commingling the scientific, the pagan spirituality, and the sexual. But the shattering of their bond in seeking the ultimate spiritual union would send Victor on his unholy pursuit of the secret of life...an exploration that would unleash only death and destruction.
