A collection of writing that explores women’s relationships with themselves, their families and lovers, their dogs, and the natural world. It contains poems about the powerlessness and broken trusts of childhood in the section Bruises on Brand New Hearts, and searing poems about loss and love in “Caring for the Wound(ed)”. It also includes the award-winning “North Wind Cycle” that is an elegy to the lost and forgotten histories of female ancestries.
