"Each time I was swept off my feet, fell off the white horse, or was rescued by a new knight, I was inspired to write poetry. Although these writings spanned over twenty years, and were inspired by different men, they all seemed to describe one single relationship.
You know the ones: they say and do just the right things to make you fall, and when you do, they flee. Thankfully, it doesn't take long before the next one picks you up and sweeps you off your feet again. And the cycle continues."
This book is for you if:
• You've found yourself dating the same man over and over
• You're tired of the pluckin' cycle
• You're ready to trade in your horizontal relationships for a vertical one
I believe it's no accident that you picked up this book, right now, at this time in your life. As you read my story, if you see yourself in these pages, let this be the beginning of the end of your pluckin' cycle, and may you find true love, at last.
If you've ever loved and lost, this book is for you. If you've been dating the same type of person over and over, and are tired of "he loves me, he loves me not," this book is for you. If you want to stop pluckin' petals, and you long to find true love, this book is for you.
From Pluckin' to Praise is full of emotion, humor and truth. Everyone has a story, and Debra believes that when we share our stories, we can help others who may be going through the same thing, even if it's just to let them know that they're not alone.
*Note that From Pluckin' to Praise features some of the same poems as In and Out of Love Poems, but contains essays revealing the journey behind the poems.
