"Powerful and provoking. The author addresses race, family secrets, and love. This is a book I will revisit, I look forward to the journey." -- Felecia, Goodreads
"Loved all the colorful characters - Good quick read. Can't wait to read more from this author in the future."-- Ashley Irby, Goodreads
"This is a slim novel but still filled with some quality poetry, raw emotions and good characters. Thoroughly enjoyable. I'd definitely look out for more output from this author."-- A. Harris, Goodreads
"Awesome book!" -- Caroline Gater, Goodreads
"Clearly spirit and heart speaking, creating its own life gumbo. [Tamara's] usage of language and phrasing is authentically hers." Lorraine Currelley, The Currelley Literary Journal
"Tamara shines light on a dark family story and tries to make sense of it. Through these sketches we witness how exercising such courage has the power to lay old ghosts to rest." -- J. Watson, Writer and Educator, CDBaby
"Tamara has always captured the essence of an event by hypnotizing her audience with incantation, chant, and song. She shares story in lullaby forms that moves the soul to cadence of steady heartbeats." -- Sulonda, CDBaby

Personal favourite ‘The Entry’ breaks down all the individual actions that comprise the experience of giving birth at home and this level of detail gives a great sense of slow motion, painting the visceral & physiological in ways reminiscent of the mythological Vagina Dentata . The essay at the end of the book explained the writer’s process & personal growth which was refreshing to read after the work rather than before it and spoiling it. Overall, a great read from a clearly talented poet.
I received this book from Story Cartel & my review is also available on [...]
I have to say, this was really interesting. The continuing story of Rachel throughout was sad, but very interestingly done - loved the different perspectives.
The essay at the end - her reasoning behind the poetry, her thoughts and opinions on it, the motivation, the process - took this book from a good little book of connected poems with lots of feelings to an ever better book. When I completed the essay, I went back and read the poems again and they just meant so much more.
Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
