Here is a delightful find, an appealing combination of simple, dark and wise...Because of Finch's direct and intimate voice, because of her easy style, you come away from this book feeling as though you know the author as a close friend, one who can give good counsel when you need it. - Peggy Miller Senior Editor, Comstock Review --Comstock Review
Darlyn Finch's words fly off the page and rain down on us, drenching us in the sweet, fresh waters of a woman learning what it is to, finally, finally, come alive. Read this book; relish it: Darlyn Finch is a wise and wonderful writer. - Connie May Fowler Author of Before Women had Wings and The Problem with Murmur Lee --Connie May Fowler
Darlyn has a candid, clear, direct free verse writing style that communicates easily to audiences about a woman's roles as daughter, wife, lover, and mother. With humor and forthright opinions, she creates a voice that declares, questions, wonders, and remembers. - Molly Peacock Poet, former president, Poetry Society of America, founder of Poetry In Motion, an initiative to put poetry on subways and buses throughout North America. --Molly Peacock
