This is simply one of the most beautiful books of poetry I've read in a very long time. Its subject matter, the death of two young girls in a plane crash, would render almost anyone mute, yet Barnett has found a way to speak of the ineffable here, and to make something beautiful out of despair. The style is appropriately, exquisitely restrained, and yet there is a poignancy in the deep silences of these poems. Do yourself a favor: buy this book, and when it arrives turn off the tv, close the paper, and let these elegies remind you of what matters in this life.

I read this book a few years ago when it first came out in 2004. Now I am rereading it, and once again I find it the beautiful tender poignant work I first loved. These are heart breaking poems and yet controlled thanks to the skill and art of Catherine Barnett.. I love this book deeply.

This is a book of poetry you cannot put down. The story flows so smoothly through such loss and pain, with such beauty. Well controlled , respectful of the silences and the unsaid. Musical and incredibly accessible poetry.
