The Garden of Doubt on the Island of Shadows

Click here to see the book on Goodreads

rating: 4 of 5 stars
There is something elegant and yet simple about this chapbook from ISMs Press. It's presence is undoubtedly raw. The sole flower on its cover is beautiful and unimposing; the text clean and easy to read, yet haunting.

This is the story of a missing musician and a love that reaches across the grave (but not in your stereotypical manner). The plot revolves around a secret island, ghostly in its almost-here/almost-not-here ambience, and the protagonist's journey there to find her lover. Of course, find him she does, but he's not quite what she expected.

A superb promise of things to come.
