Romantic Outlaws
Romantic Outlaws The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley By Gordon, Charlotte Book - 2015 | First U.S. edition

This is a well-written biography that goes back and forth between mother and daughter showing their struggles and triumphs and makes them real people instead of just names in textbooks. They were women who felt emotion very strongly and did the things they wanted to do despite the people in their lives trying to make them live conventional lives. Wollstonecraft and Shelley were anything but conventional. From this biography, we learn that Wollstonecraft was actually at the forefront of the Romantic Movement, which her daughter and son-in-law would give voice to in their writing.
