"A fascinating portrait of an enduring legend." -- BOOKLIFE PRIZE. -- "
"His beauty drew every eye upon him when he entered a room. No picture is like him." -- Sir Walter Scott."
At twenty-seven, Lady Caroline Lamb reads the story of a young aristocrat's strange journey through unknown and barbaric parts of Europe in a new book, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage," so wildly different to anything else she had ever read, she declared to the world that in her opinion, the author would certainly be "mad, bad, and dangerous to know" .... A few weeks later she actually meets him, and becomes obsessed to the point of erotomania.
Returning from the wilds of Albania to a life of luxury as one of the beau monde in Regency London, George Gordon Lord Byron is astounded at the burst of fame that engulfs him on the publication of his tale of foreign lands in Childe Harold's Pilgrimage. "I awoke one morning and found myself famous."
In this meticulously researched biographical novel, based on his own personal letters and private diaries, Gretta Curran Browne has gone "behind the screen" to learn every detail and tell you the true story of that charismatic young man known as Lord Byron.
