This book tells the story of Dracula from Mina Harker's perspective. As the story unfolds you see the connection between Mina and the Count unfold from the time she was little til he revealed himself when she was older. We learn of their life together not only in this time setting but also in the past. How they have been connected over many lifetimes as soul mates. It was a love that didn't know the boundaries of time. We also see the cultural changes taking place with women during this time in history as women were fighting for their rights and others not wishing for change. And how women were treated that had normal sexual desires. Many were placed in asylums and treated cruely as men tried to subdue them. All in all this was a great read that I found hard to put down. I look forward to reading this one again.
