They take a holiday vacation along with Mary’s stepsister, Claire, and Lord Byron and his doctor John William Polidori. They all rent a villa at Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Byron challenges each member of this group to write a horror story and see which one is most well received. Mary begins to write the novel Frankenstein. She has an image of a monster coming to life and causing havoc. The novel is only the beginning of hard times for Mary. Over the next six years, tragic events seem to surround her. Not only do these events affect her, but the people around her as well. Mary blames Frankenstein for these events in her life. Claire and Byron get married and have a baby. Claire distances herself from Byron and will not allow him to see his daughter. Mary blames herself for these events, as well as the creature that she created. While Frankenstein is very popular with an international audience, Mary is not able to enjoy the fame her book has brought to her and her family. Mary gets tired of being the cause of pain to those around her. Mary and her family decide to move to Pisa so they can no longer hurt the people that they love.
