The mother/daughter heroines of this absorbing dual biography only shared life on earth for a few days. But their radical lives, presented in alternating chapters, shared many parallels. These brave, freethinking women - Wollstonecraft, a trailblazing feminist writer, and Shelley, the author of Frankenstein - each weathered harrowing times, dove into unconventional relationships, and fought societal confines to shape her own destiny. With the quick pace and gossip-worthy intrigue of a historical novel, Romantic Outlaws presents a thoughtful and rousing account of two brilliantly fascinating literary women. (CH)
