The transformative power of love and spiritual awakening are explored in this richly textured second collection from award-winning poet Merle Nudelman. With imagery that is at once startling and evocative, poems of layered scenes of domesticity and the natural world border on the elegiac. Nudelman artfully probes the nuances and vagaries which define relationships and the shifting moments of lover, abuser, victim, and healer.
"[Merle Nudelman's] poems possess that rare combination of emotional astuteness and a penetrating depth of vision." --Bruce Meyer, author, "Lives and Works: Interviews with Canadian Writers"
