From dear grandmother, Mother Eanes, who was always there, through her dedicated parents who set high standards for their children and saw them met and exceeded, to her brothers who are still there today, she has known love and support. She’s needed it, for her life has been has been filled with mishaps and challenges most of us will never know.
After a nearly fatal and totally debilitating car accident, Mother Eanes told her, “Your neck was broken, not your mind, so figure something out.” The granddaughter did and does. I relished her story and sang with her poems.
This small book truly lives up to its name as it focuses on pivotal events in Eanes’s life, true cameos from a long story.
