The Invisible Girl

Rosina is secretly engaged to Henry, the son of her guardian Sir Peter Vernon. On discovering their relationship, an angry Sir Peter casts her out into the Welsh countryside and to her death.
When Henry returns home, he is heartbroken and searches for Rosina’s body, only to learn of a villager’s tale about ‘The Invisible Girl’, a ghostly figure that wanders the woods at night.
‘The Invisible Girl’ (1832) is a short, Gothic, ghost story by the English writer Mary Shelley, famous for her best-selling novel ‘Frankenstein’.

Mary Shelley (1797–1851) was an English author and travel writer best known for her ground-breaking Gothic novel ‘Frankenstein’ (1818). Considered one of the first true works of science-fiction, the book became an instant bestseller.
It has been adapted for TV, stage and film on many occasions, with Boris Karloff famously playing Frankenstein’s monster on screen in 1933. Other adaptations include ‘Mary Shelley's Frankenstein’ (1994) starring Kenneth Branagh and Robert De Niro and ‘Viktor Frankenstein’ (2015) starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy.
Shelley’s other novels include Valperga (1823), The Last Man (1826), Perkin Warbeck (1830), Lodore (1835), Falkner (1837) and the posthumously published Mathilde (1959). However, she will always be remembered as the creator of Frankenstein.
The book continues to influence filmmakers, writers and popular culture to this day, inspiring and terrifying new audiences the world over.
