Waterstones Says

The mercurial literary stylist delivers a typically rich slice of fiction that travels from Alexandria to Paris to a Scottish church in a tale of passionate love and scientific innovation.

Soon to be a major film starring Emma Stone, from the director of The Favourite.

A life without freedom to choose is not worth having.

Godwin Baxter's scientific ambition to create the perfect companion is realized when he finds the drowned body of the beautiful Bella, who he brings back to life in a Frankenstein-esque feat. But his dream is thwarted by Dr. Archibald McCandless's jealous love for his creation... but what does Bella think?

This story of true love and scientific daring whirls the reader from the private operating-theatres of late-Victorian Glasgow through aristocratic casinos, low-life Alexandria and a Parisian bordello, reaching an interrupted climax in a Scottish church.
