Journal Entry 1 by wingmaryzeewing from Taneytown, Maryland USA on Tuesday, June 7, 2005
Picked up at the Book Thing, for BC.

From the cover -
Winner of England's Booker Prize and the literary sensation of the year, Possession is an exhilarating novel of wit and romance, at once an intellectual mystery and a triumphant love story. It is the tale of a pair of young scholars researching the lives of two Victorian poets. As they uncover their letters, journals, and poems, and track their movements from London to Yorkshire - from spiritualist seances to the fairy-haunted far west of Brittany - what emerges is an extraordinary counterpoint of passions and ideas.

Journal Entry 2 by wing6of8wing at Westminster, Maryland USA on Friday, June 8, 2018
Sadly, MaryZee passed suddenly in September 2012. MaryZee's daughter is now ready to rehome her mom's books and I was willing to collect and redistribute them to keep her literary legacy alive.

Journal Entry 3 by ResQgeek at Alexandria, Virginia USA on Monday, June 18, 2018
I am honored to be one those entrusted with some of MaryZee's books to release to the world. MaryZee was an incredible evangelist for BookCrossing, and I find comfort in thinking that we were friends. She is greatly missed.
