Staff Reviews



Mrs. Poe gleams like a diamond in gaslight, its facets glittering.  Look, there's a love story, seductively shiny.  Over here, a tale of 19th century New York with its cobbled streets and sinister corners.  And sparking over it all, the mysterious Edgar Allan Poe - and all of the mystery, longing and history is conveyed by a novelist in complete command of her story.

Readers who enjoyed imagining the private lives of famous figures in Loving Frank and The Paris Wife will savor the behind-the-scenes peek into the intimacies of Edgar Allen Poe, his infirm young wife, and Frances Osgood, the writer who stole his heart. As compulsively readable -- and often as dark -- as Poe's works, Mrs. Poe is a well-researched and detailed work whose supporting cast of characters include Margaret Fuller, Horace Greely, and other literati of mid-19th century New York. -- Cheryl McKeon, Book Passage, San Francisco, CA

Description


The triumphant success of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" compels fledgling poet Frances Osgood to meet her literary idol, a mysterious, complicated man who soon has her under his seductive spell in an all-consuming affair. And when Edgar's frail young wife breaks into their idyll to befriend her rival, Frances fears that deceiving Mrs. Poe may be as impossible as cheating death itself. . . .
