And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep

I'm not really sure how much I can say in my review of Finding Poe by Leigh M Lane, without spoiling the book for those who haven’t read it yet. It is just one of those books where if you accidently say too much… there is no point for the other person to read it. So, with that being said, what CAN I say?
This story follows Karina a lady who, leaves her home country and social status, comes to the st...more
