"Sally Stewart Mohney gives us vivid insights into nature and family in these excellent poems, but what I admire just as much is the superb sound-play in her poetry."
—Ron Rash, author of Sabrina
"Sally Stewart Mohney’s poems sing with mystery, but they are never ethereal, never ephemeral or buried in obliquity. Instead, Mohney’s world is rooted in stunning imagery and clarity, and her poems are designed with care and grace. They are bold, luminous, and tender, gathered together to form vivid silences that reside in both heart and mind. Their lyricism and incandescence demand multiple readings. Mohney is a new and significant voice in American poetry."
—William Wright, editor of The Southern Poetry Anthology
