"I love Kathryn Haydon's poems. They're both playful and profound, and transport us to Lake Michigan's shores. May this book inspire you to paint your own word pictures of a place you love." -Susan G. Wooldridge, Author of poemcrazy

"These deceptively simple poems delight the senses. Lake Michigan becomes a witty mirror to human longings in Kathryn Haydon's brief, luminous lyrics." -Joshua Corey, Author of Hannah and the Master

"Kathryn Haydon's poetry has the power to transport us to tranquility. She offers both flow and dissonance in mood. She guides her readers to personal interpretation and visions of memorable images. All at once, Kathryn encourages us to breathe deeply, and still leaves us breathless." -Julie Isaacson, Author of The Angry Chef: Satisfying Recipes Inspired by Unsatisfying Relationships

"The lake sparkles in this collection. There is musicality and energy to these poems." -Jennifer Meyer, Highland Park Poetry
