Reviews

"Lenore Hart takes on one the great biographical mysteries of American literary culture -- the strange and passionate love between Edgar Allan Poe and Sissy, his child-bride. Only an exceptionally daring novelist would venture in this dark wood, yet Hart has charged bravely into the thicket. She returns from the wilderness with a lively, compelling narrative in Sissy's voice, here wonderfully imagined and believable, even when verging on the fantastic. The Raven's Bride is a bristling novel that adds considerably to the legend of Poe and his ill-fated marriage, evoking a world long gone with an eye for the exact detail." --Jay Parini, author of The Last Station
