Editorial Reviews

Review

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

The eerie thing is that her stories and poems reach well beyond us.
Cacarov
I probably am not explaining myself well, but it is a great feeling to really enjoy poetry for the first time in quite some time.

This is the kind of book you read in the middle of a hot bath, relaxing with some scented candles burning around you.

This is the kind of book you read in the middle of a hot bath, relaxing with some scented candles burning around you. Darlyn Finch is a master storyteller and poet evoking poignant, funny, and sometimes sad images of her life. For a real treat you can also get her book on CD and hear what an extraordinary storyteller she realy is. I always enjoy finding an author who creates "must have" books for my bookshelf. Darlyn is certainly one of those authors. ~ Rik Feeney / Writing Books for Fun, Fame & Fortune!

Fans of Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" will LOVE "Girls" one of three short stories mixed in with some of the most straight-forward, clear-eyed, that'll-preach poetry this side of Billy Collins. Finch's "Holes," a tribute to her father, who died when she was 17, is kid-friendly and mother-approved, while others (Big-Boned Gal, Again, The Pink Ones and Picnic) should be set aside for mother to savor alone. The influence of Finch's mentors Connie May Fowler and Molly Peacock, who both provided blurbs for the book, is evident throughout. A good read for all, a GREAT read for any woman over 30, and a good pass-along from mother to daughter.

Twain and Faulkner would applaude this gutsy, heartfelt collection of poems, stories and short essays. Be prepared to laugh and cry and nod and shout - but don't let this "little" book get away from you! RED WAX ROSE is definately for my keeper shelf. While I have purchased a few for gifts for the writer friends in my life, I highly recommend this reading to EVERYONE who reads to be moved, involved, celebrated, consoled and led on a very human journey! Well done, Miss Darlyn!
