Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the subject matter is evocative and poignant, the book's heavy focus on the child's sickness and the writers tendency to consistently return to the same perspectives and thoughts throughout the collection consistently results in an experience that feels more weighed down than open and nuanced, and a missed opportunity to use surprise and imagination to explore the many subtleties and voices of this story.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I picked up this book of poetry after being completely blown away after reading the poem "Station" by Maria Hummel in Poetry magazine (http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poem/239936). The rest of the book does not disappoint, and is similarly filled with beautiful imagery surrounding what was an obviously very sad time in the author's life. The book is mainly about the author's experience when her young son is battling an autoimmune condition in the hospital. As a person who has chronic autoimmune conditions that surfaced in my teenage years, this book resonated with me on an extremely personal level. (I also lent it to my mom, who found it similarly engaging.) Even without my personal connection to the work, Maria Hummel is an extremely fine poet and I look forward to reading many more collections from her.
