|Plot Summary of Possessions|
|"In this book a pair of avid scholars trying to discover the connection between two Victorian poets.The book sets off as Roland Michell (one of the scholar) comes across two highly moving drafts of a letter that was intended to be written by the poet Randolph Henry Ash to an unidentified woman.
Triggered to set in motion by these historical documents, Roland takes the help of Maud Bailey (a fellow researcher on the life and works of Christabel LaMotte) to find out who that woman was with whom R. H. Ash must had been so engrossed and what specifically must have transpired between them. However to do so, they have to trace missing letters,poems, diary entries, outrun zealous collectors and convince people to share information all across the united kingdom, from London to Yorkshire and fairy-haunted Brittany ... things which are not necessarily easy, nor within the grasp of not-that-well-off enthusiasts."
