From the Publisher
This collection contains many raw emotions, and the narrator’s pain and longing is apparent on every page. So, too, is her struggle to uplift her spirits and keep hope alive through the grace of God’s goodness... This book may appeal to some readers looking for accessible poetry that is about personal challenges from a Christian woman’s perspective.
Jacobs’ Christian faith plays a primary role in this book; many of the poems’ resolutions or concluding morals point toward religious belief: “Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in GOD’s world by mistake / Sometimes accepting or walking away is better for your own mental health’s sake.
Lines that express the stages of grief experienced after her father’s death are heartrending: “I don’t know how Christmas will be without you / All I know it will be a hard and sad day to get through.”
