In 1814, 16 year old Mary Godwin eloped to Paris with the 22 year old married poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, inviting Mary's 15 year old step-sister Claire Claremont to go with them. They would walk across war ravaged France to Switzerland and return up the Rhine River. Three years later Mary would publish a journal she kept of that journey of two teenage girls and the poet of "free love". In the published version of "A History of a Six Week's Tour" she never revealed the true secrets of that trip, from where a later inspiration arose, but here is revealed the secret portions of that tour and beyond.
