Lyn’s book is out, and the initial reviews, largely from other writers, are outstanding.
The book is a look at the motions involved in domestic abuse (physical and emotional), expressed through poetry. It’s based on her personal experience in an earlier period of her life. It’s not a chronology or autobiography in the traditional sense. Instead, she uses a variety of poetry forms to the conflicting feelings that can arise and the “look and feel” of the experience.
The book is newly available on Amazon, Google books, and Barnes and Noble, as well as from the publisher, Lulu.
We think this is an important work, especially for anyone going through this trauma. Please help us spread the word.
