Rise and Shine

Isobel Salvie seems to have everything; youth, beauty, wealth... unfortunately, none of that matters much when you're dead, poisoned by an unknown person for equally unknown reasons. Arriving in Heaven, Isobel is greeted by God herself. All seems well, because as it turns out, Paradise is wonderful.
However, the pleasures of the afterlife don't come for free...
Poetry in Purgatory is a unique, ever-evolving story about what it means to live, love and make peace with things you can't run away from... even when you may desperately want to.
