The poems in this book speak to both Cleveland's roots in the North, and her love for the South. It quickly becomes clear that both regions hold pieces of her heart. Cleveland's poems are well-crafted and dynamic but at the same time warm and comfortable - even familiar. A number of the poems have previously appeared in journals and anthologies but this is her first published collection.
