It is 1845, and Frances Osgood is desperately
trying to make a living as a writer in New York; not an easy task for a woman, especially
one with two children and a philandering portrait painter as her husband. As
Frances tries to sell her work, she finds editors are only interested in
writing similar to that of the new renegade literary sensation Edgar Allan Poe,
whose poem, “The Raven” has struck a public nerve.
She meets the handsome and mysterious Poe at a
literary party, and the two have an immediate connection. Poe wants Frances to
meet with his wife since she claims to be an admirer of her poems, and Frances
is curious to see the woman whom Edgar married.
As Frances spends more and more time with the
intriguing couple, her intense attraction for Edgar brings her into dangerous
territory. And Mrs. Poe, who acts like an innocent child, is actually more
manipulative and threatening than she appears. As Frances and Edgar’s
passionate affair escalates, Frances must decide whether she can walk away
before it’s too late. Download and start listening now!
