Eden II Press, 32 pages, $10
“Jones uses imagery in a vivid and compelling way: in ‘Daylight Saving,’ ‘clock measures off seconds/like a miser counting pennies; in ‘Highway 17,’ ‘Blueberries watch silently,’ in ‘Water World,’ Jones sees tadpoles with ’soft black bodies like commas.’ It is necessary to read through the 26 poems to appreciate how far the poet has traveled. There’s no doubt she has experienced both joy and reconciliation.” Reviewer Debra Fieguth, Christian Week.

–Steven Heighton, winner of the Lampert award and Petra Kenny Prize for Poetry
From Northwestern Ontario a collection of poems by an award-winning poet that explores themes of loss, faith, folk tales and longing for transcendence from the perspective of one whose feet are firmly rooted here on the ground.
