    1. Can I perhaps mention before we get down to it that I am no scholar or systematic reader of poetry. However, in the books I have read of Andrea's I have have she has a special way with words.I was keen therefore to get and read a copy of an early book of her poetry.I have now read it twice in two separate sittings and recommend it without hesitation.Some poems I still don't get others I will return to again and again. Without question Altzheimer's is a stand out poem that doesn't mention the con [...]


    2. For a copy of this book, please visit: amazon/A-Mothers-StrinIt is astonishing that such a young poet is so aware of the ambiguities of string.

    3. A beautiful collection of poetry. There were so many clever and beautiful phrases in each poem. **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**



    4. I was happy to have won this in a giveaway!The cover is beautiful. My favorite piece in this book has to be "Alzheimer's". "We keep walking in familiar circles, never reaching familiar places, and I feel as though, I will never reach home."I recommend this to anyone who wants to have an enjoyable read.
