Mother's Milk is wonderful. For me, its strength and beauty lies in the way it accepts the mystery of the feminine divine while simultaneously and confidently asserting that this mystery should no longer be relegated.
In this way, the book reminds me of Emily Dickinson's line to "tell all the truth but tell it slant," which is the task of all good poetry and the task that Mother's Milk magnificently accomplishes.
In addition, I love the way the endnotes highlight just how present the concept of Heavenly Mother has been within Mormonism, even if the mainstream culture so often fails to acknowledge this presence.
Altogether, Mother's Milk is much needed addition to the Mormon canon. I hope it paves the way for similar projects to come.
Thank you, Rachel Hunt Steenblik, for your voice and your gift to us all.

The Mother is forever brushing
Her child's hair behind her ears."
