9780061979347: Dracula, My Love: The Secret Journals of Mina Harker

Many have read and loved Bram Stoker's "Dracula". But questions remain. What is the true story of Dracula's origin? What if Mina could not bring herself to record the true story of their scandalous affair-until now? In "Dracula, My Love: The Secret Journals of Mina Harker", Syrie James explores these questions and more. A vibrant dramatization, told from Mina's point of view, brings to life the crucial parts of Stoker's story while showcasing Mina's sexual awakening and evolution as a woman, and revealing a secret that could destroy her life. Torn between two men - a loving husband and a dangerous lover - Mina struggles to hang on to the deep love she's found within her marriage, even as she is inexorably drawn to Dracula himself - the vampire that everyone she knows is determined to destroy.
