I cannot remember how The Heart’s Journey Home fell into my hands but like most things in life, it came at the right moment.
I was in the process of writing The Longest Nine Months and it was in reading Natalie Ducey’s poem Borrowed Angel that I came across these lines:
The mind fears the certainty
Of what the heart cannot live without
The words reminded me of my protagonist, Campbell Jones, and the difficult decision facing her. I was so inspired by these words that I included the quote at the opening of The Longest Nine Months.
The Heart’s Journey Home is poetry for the soul. ♥
The Heart’s Journey Home is a collection of 23 poems that capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts – the brilliant beauty of life’s journey. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye. We know the immobilizing force of grief; we experienced hardships that have brought tears, revelations, and self-discoveries of strength unknown. These trials could easily dishearten us, but instead we choose to be more loving, compassionate, and kind. That is worth celebrating. The Heart’s Journey Home is a celebration of our heart’s journey through life’s majestic beauty. ( In BookLife)
