Description
One long hot summer in the 1880s Bram Stoker escaped to seaside Whitby from the pressures of theatre life in London. These months are unaccounted for, and around them Ann Victoria Roberts has woven a passionate, mysterious, and enthralling novel.A married Bram Stoker, about to begin the writing of his famous novel, develops a dangerous relationship with a local girl from an old seafaring family, who introduces him to the wild sea, the wrecks, and local legends -- some of which will come to new life in Dracula -- and to his own weaknesses and desires.

display_descriptionWho was Bram Stoker - and why did he write Dracula? Through the words of Damaris Sterne, daughter of an old seafaring family, we meet a man escaping from the pressures of his life in London. As the two become involved in a passionate but dangerous affair, he is introduced to the wild sea, the wrecks, and Whitby's local legends - while she is shown glimpses of the wider world beyond. Evocative and mysterious, Moon Rising opens out to become not only the gripping story of a tragic love-affair, but a revealing commentary on the genesis of an immortal classic.
