"This is a spooky, unsettling book, muted like a trumpet can be muted, haunted by women who have not told, who will not tell, cannot tell--but who speak anyway: hoping we'll get it by what they do not say, or by the look in their eyes we cannot see. What I love and honor about this collection of poems is the honesty of the struggle-the interrupted speech itself, the voices that live on in me long after I've closed the book. Patricia Traxler has done crucial work here: rigorous, faithful, tragic, hopeful, true."--Boston Review
"Traxler's poems give us the inevitable journey into larger life, through the habit of change, the challenge to love, the wealth of loss. Her best poems come out of the prairie and farms of the Midwest and the life there. But from this springboard, Traxler goes on to investigate, sometimes with humor, more often with a meditative urgency, how we support and how we fail each other in relationships."--Margaret Gibson
"These poems strike a thrilling balance between personal disclosure and the rigors of writing."--Publishers Weekly
