Reviews

"The poems reveal familiar experiences, particularly experiences familiar to women, in comforting ways. . . . The poems exhibit a considerable skill in both subject and craft. The title's metaphor of light is manifested in all its richness. . . . A refreshing volume for readers who find contemporary poetry difficult to access." - Choice

"She is unchallengingly articulate and earthborne, never sillier than she wishes to be, and sometimes might startle us with her discernments." - Mandrake Poetry Review
