Lisey Landon lost her husband Scott two years ago, after a twenty-five-year marriage of profound, sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was a celebrated, award-winning, novelist. And a complex man. Lisey knew there was a dark place where her husband ventured to face his demons. Boo'ya Moon is what Scott called it; a realm that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed to write and live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face her husband's demons. And what begins as a widow's effort to sort through her husband's effects becomes a perilous journey into the heart of darkness.

Lisey's Story by Stephen King is a story about Lisey and the love she has for her husband. I adore King's work, and this book was no exception. To me, this is a love story only the way King can do it, and of course there is imagination running amok. All I can say is that I loved it, but I'm bias w...
