"Sofia Iriarte's Bravery, Heart & Red Shoes is speckled with gems. It is a delightful debut collection from an emerging poet. Its rich figurative imagery coupled with its honesty on the American immigrant experience makes for a truly enlightening read evocative of Pablo Neruda's early work."

- Tova Greene, Author of lilac on the damned's breath

"Provocative, sentimental, slick, and studded with pathos. Bravery, Heart & Red Shoes is raw as a hurricane."

- Keanu Joaquin Del Toro, Author of The Eve of Our Generation

"The rich, colorful language in Bravery, Heart & Red Shoes feels like a night at home with a glass of cabernet and a bar of dark chocolate. In her sweet, sharp lines, Sofia Iriarte takes us on a search for a higher power through nature, legend, history, and home until we discover with her that the highest power resides within."

- Neysa King, Author of Rainbow Body

"There is bravery found in the heart that paints these red shoes with blood. These poems are full of passion, growth, and life. A wonderful coming of age story met with emotion and imagery."

- Kendall Hope, Author of Pockets of Lavender

"Sofia's poetry invites your eyes to dance with creation, wordplay, and rhythm. They dance you to your home and to your loved ones. I love them."

- Erin Flanagan, Author of Haikus to Irish Tunes

"Bravery, Heart & Red Shoes is a poignant and cathartic expression of what it means to find one's identity as an immigrant child. Anyone who has ever been displaced or felt isolated in their growing pains will vicariously feel the joy, heartache, and love that is getting to know yourself as a young woman. Iriarte's poetry flows with a warm lyricism that's a pleasure to sit with."

- Victoria Lynn Beckett, Author of Learning to Swim While Drowning

"This book pulled at my heartstrings. It was learning to dance flamenco while learning to navigate the various terrains of life in a new place. Bravery, Heart & Red Shoes is a beautiful, cryptic collection of poems filled with bravery, heart, and acceptance."

- Flor Ana, Author of Perspective (and other poems)
