Reviews

". . . a deeply affecting sequence of poems that takes us near the white hot center of human emotions. As a narrative, the poems move boldly toward, and through, a profound grief and the process of grieving. I was enthralled as I read, and strangely uplifted by the closing sequence, where the poet finds a level of transcendence that is both beautiful and true. Marilyn Shelton is a gifted poet, and she has accomplished something important in this new work." - Jay Parini

"The opening half of this book weeps with emotional phrasing. . . the color of grief. The second half pours us poetry out of a spiritual carafe. I found such strength in this book that I was awed. I could not help but feel the enormous depth of her. Outstanding!" - Seasons
