Editorial Reviews

Review

“This collection . . . demonstrates Willard’s trademark observant eye.” —Publishers Weekly

“Willard’s ear for the language has always been extraordinary. . . . Willard describes what she sees so the reader sees it too, while rendering her descriptions with a musical energy that spills off the tongue. The older poems in this book weather well. . . . Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

“The only thing wrong with this book . . . is that it eventually ends. . . . Unabashed in her praise of God’s doings in this ordinary and miraculous world, Willard creates a new spiritual poetry for this age.” —Booklist

About the Author

Nancy Willard (1936–2017) grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She was the author of two novels, seven books of stories and essays, and twelve books of poetry, including The Sea at Truro (2012). A winner of the Devins Memorial Award, she received NEA grants in both fiction and poetry. Her book Water Walker was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and her picture book A Visit to William Blake’s Inn was the first volume of poetry to receive the Newbery Medal, the country’s highest honor for children’s writing.
