The poems in this collection are ripe to bursting with feeling. Their richness comes from the deep truths
that give rise to them. This is a moving work. The Blue Dragonfly is a melody for the spectacle of trauma; a butterfly dancing through a dark landscape; a tragedy undone by poetry.
The Speed of Mercy captures the unbearable cost of childhood betrayal and what happens when history is suppressed, our past is forgotten — yet finding the truth can change the future.
