Kristy Robinett has always had helpers in spirit, but when she was thirteen, she met the most fascinating spirit guide of all–Edgar Allan Poe. Forevermore tells the true story of how Edgar Allan Poe helps Kristy heal her soul so that she is able to fulfill her destiny.

Always reluctant to be known as a psychic, Kristy Robinett is shocked when Poe begins helping her discover information about her past lives. Not only does he encourage her to become a writer, but he also teaches her about his life so she is able to help him in his journey as a spirit guide, affirming the comforting fact that we are all given the chance to learn and grow on the other side.

Forevermore is the story of Kristy Robinett, who’s always had spirit helpers, one of them being an Indian, another a woman, but the most important one being Edgar Allan Poe. In Forevermore, Poe helps her discovers not only more about Poe’s life and his own tragic death, but also about Kristy’s past lives, and the role she played in Poe’s life back in the nineteenth century.

I was unsure what to think of the book, considering Kristy Robinett is convinced she talked not just to one spirit guide but several, and one of them is none other than Poe. It’s a stiff claim, and makes one think if the author is perhaps a little cocky to think the ghost of Poe would talk to her. However…I’m not convinced it’s all in Robinett’s mind. If it’s all true…I’m not sure either. But the author sounded sincere enough to convince me up to some point. She definitely believes what she’s writing, that’s for sure.

The book is part true haunting, part history novel. Robinett visits Baltimore, and other prominent places in Poe’s life, and tries to discover what happened to him, how he died, and what their connection is. Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, or anything of the sorts, it’s still entertaining, and a must read for fans of Poe. I knew a lot about Poe – at least, I thought I did – but I discovered something new every few pages, so my Poe knowledge is more limited than I thought, and I’m glad I learned more about the famous author.

The writing was solid, and like I said, the book is entertaining. I’m still not convinced it’s all true, but it made a good read nonetheless.
