"Straight-to-the-heart imagery, fairy tale transformed into first-person confession, a willingness to risk sentimentality while clearly understanding its limits: these are what I love best about Ruth Daniell's The Brightest Thing." -- Sue Sinclair, author of Heaven's Thieves
"The Brightest Thing is a garden of story, blossoming with hardship, ache, love and light--'Everywhere roses slow and rich as honey or amber or blood.' Each poem glistens with a kind of hopeful magic, the kind of magic that kindles with desire and bravery, a glistening readers will want to share in and pass along like the beloved fairy tales we grew up with and still hold dear." -- Mallory Tater, author of This Will Be Good
