it was amazing
Read in February, 2011

I don't usually read women's fiction, which this looked like to judge by the cover, but the Poe angle hooked me. I like Poe and I read a lot of literary biographies. Anyhow I see what U means about the supernatural frame. You really would need some note of hope to avoid making Poe and Virginia a real downer of a story.

I agree this is really well written, though I would have liked more discssion of Poe's stories and maybe integration of his views of the afterlife into the frame of the plot. Also all the relationship stuff goes on a bit long - but I guess it IS mainly a woman's book -

Quotes Malinki Liked

Lenore Hart
“In the opera, there was only one great love for the characters. In... tales there was only one love as well - yes, even after death. Everything I had read or sung or felt said this was always the case. If you ignored this great truth, if you gave up on it of being too hard to hold on to, or let it slip away to have mere things, no real meaning could be left in life.”
Lenore Hart, The Raven's Bride
