Reviews

"[These poems] grow as naturally on the page as grass and flowers, yet never try to conceal a terrain of early graves, emotional land mines, and levies of sorrow."
-- Gloria Steinem

"A lifeboat in a storm, warm soup in the mouth, a rhumba in the streets of the heart."
-- Jack Kornfield

"These are powerful anthems of womanhood and age, although just as likely to be empowering to men and to the not-yet-old."
-- Booklist

"Walker's many fans won't be disappointed by this book."
-- Publishers Weekly

"The poems sing of joy and pain, loss and grief, love and transformation, with results that are redemptive....Highly recommended for all readers of contemporary poetry and for anyone interested in African American literature."
-- Library Journal

"Her poems are intimate and moving, and, like the deepest of heart-to-heart conversations with one who knows us well, they touch the places that hurt, acknowledge the pain, and shine healing light on it."
-- Spirituality & Health
