    Stoker’s Shadow tells the story of the late Bram Stoker’s surviving family members in 1922 as they struggle to come to grips with the dark undercurrents in the novel Dracula. Florence, Bram’s widow, is shocked when a German company, Prana Films, pirates her late husband’s story for a film, Nosferatu. William, the son of Bram and Florence, is at first baffled by his mother’s discomfort, but he soon finds himself struggling with his own memories.

    Mary, Florence’s free-spirited young Irish companion, is captivated by 1920s London and all its mysteries. She finds escape in her copy of Dracula and forms an unlikely, and to Florence’s mind a dangerous, bond of friendship with William.
