Genre: Introspection, back story, friendship.
Why This Must Be Read: Ellyne is such a brilliant writer. One of the kind that hit hard, hit fast, and leave you breathless with imagery and just how much they can pack into such a small space. This story just breathes. It's not a straight romance; it's actually the story of Gold's minion, Mr. Dove. But Gold and Belle's love is the foundation of that story. This is a story that's stuck in my head since I read it earlier this year, and one that I'm betting will stick with you too.
