Readers will have to take this as on faith. Better yet, they should buy a copy and have a whiff for themselves.

The collection starts with some works about social justice and the wrongs of the world we live in. Some, like Just Visiting, struck at my emotions and made me feel terrible for someone I don't know. But that is the author's gift, she can cause a stir of emotion in a few words. In Somewhere Between Two and Five, a poem about children, a huge smile came to my face when I read, "We even played games of... if you show me yours...I'll show you mine...with no strings attached." Again, a lot of emotion, only this time it was light and fun.
As the collection continues the works evolve toward marriage, family, and children. Again, the poet puts into words the emotion many of us have felt during that phase of life. 12 Months to go: Bad Advice on Marriage, was a very funny work. So was The Truth About Marriage, where she compares pop culture to real life.
I'd recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys thinking about what they have read long after you put your Kindle down. To me, that's the definition of a 5 star book.
My favorite poem- The Pilot. Buy the book, you'll see why.
