    This book was a complete mixed bag of hauntingly beautiful short stories I hoped would never end to ones I couldn t wait to finish There are poems too but I bought the book for the stories.The highlights to me were Somewhere in my Mind there is a Painting Box by Charles De Lint I don t think this man can write badly The romantic in me wanted a different ending ...
