Samenvatting

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.
