Holding Her Within

By: Deva Shore

In Holding Her Within, Deva Shore brings us into a fairy tale setting with two lovers in the wood for a magical day of joy. Yet, like in many fairy tales sometimes something, or someone, is lost, and sometimes, just sometimes strange events take an even stranger turn when a lonely cabin and its inhabitant are not what they seem.
