I love the words of Jessica Kristie. Heartfelt, touching, and all that we can relate to in some way. Loss that we all go through. Memories we keep in and never forget. Memories that run through our head at odd and unexpected times. Hurt and pain that is so hard to bare, yet there is no choice. Loneliness and loss. Wounds left to heal. But it is left up to us to heal them. The choice is ours.

Wow, this is not the kind of poetry you would want to read to lift yourself up, but it's very, very moving. I read some of this author's poetry on her website and then decided to get a copy of one of her poetry volumes. It touches me in so many ways. Definitely give this one a read!

"Threads of Life" is like music to me, for there is a song for every mood and emotion. There is comfort and hope in knowing that someone else has traveled the same road and found hope and healing. It may not be exactly the same circumstance as the Author, but all the same emotions are present. My favorite is "Frozen" it touched me deeply. Now not just a song will come to mind when I feel one of these strong emotions, but the words of Jessica Kristie will draw me back to her book to once again find I am not alone.

Format: Paperback
Open to any page of Jessica Kristie's new book of poems and you will fall under her created spell. These poems talk about life, loss, grief, meaning, pain, wisdom, and life lessons with passion in an open and honest way that still shocks me -- mesmerizing. The work is beautiful, and I hate describing anything with such a pat word. What does beautiful mean? There is a dark beauty to the language, the way Jessica places a thought, makes me see something new in an old and fading image or mindset. Wow. These aren't the school poems I grew up studying. They are new and filled with turns of phrase that had me rereading. I read a poem each night. That's just the way I like to read poetry and short story collections, since I want to picture each theme, image, character's voice as one entity before moving onto the next. Threads of Life can be read, as most poetry collections can be read, very quickly, one after another, but sparsing them out over the last couple months has been enlightening, and kept me in Jessica Kristie's world, her mindset -- a very curious and fine place to be. Can't wait for the next book Kristie writes, which is rumored to be a novel. Check out her first collection of poetry as well. Equally thrilling.

I received an ARC of Threads of Life. My opinions are my own. I love poetry and I hope you enjoy Jessica's book too.
