In this moving collection of poems, Cassie Premo Steele discovers affirmation emerging from “ruin.” Whether she is describing the death of her alcoholic stepfather or the pain of childbirth, she finds “something beautiful, again and again, out of what is torn.” Her poems connect to themes and places at once familiar and universal. This is a hopeful book, filled with the wisdom that comes from acceptance.
