I thought the poetry was beautiful and the drawings between each were a nice touch!

There are beautiful black and white illustrations with gray shadings throughout this book. The symmetry of these illustrations make the book visually attractive. However, these illustrations appear more than once and for my taste they are used too often.

The content of the free verse poems suffers from being sentimental nature poetry peppered with New Age images and clichés in spite of very occasionally using traditional spiritual terms such as "Jesus", "temple", "cathedral" and "divine". Ultimately, her sense of the mystical is mostly mother earth worship.

If that is the kind of stuff you like to read then the book might be a fine addition to your library because the book is well made. However, I need more substance from the writing itself. If it is spiritual, I expect the spirituality to be real. I hope the author finds one day the spiritual joy she's seems to want but is clearly missing.

Honestly this was one I was very excited to read, and I was able to get the gist of the first few poems but I didn’t really connect with them. This will be one I try and go back to because as I stated, I was excited for this, I just don’t have the proper attention for this poem at the moment.

Lovely collection of poems. Would make a great Valentine’s or anniversary present. The illustrations are simple but seem fitting with the content.
