Is anything more important than: Love

Poems to bolster every heart that ever beat

by Donna Ashworth

#Love #NetGalley

I recently reviewed another book by this poet so was quite excited to read this one as well. Donna Ashworth has an easy style that invites readers in. She also offers something to think about in each of her poems. In these ways, she reminds me of another favorite poet of mine, Mary Oliver. This is high praise.

In this volume, the subject is love in its many manifestations. There is, of course, romantic love but also love of family, friends, pets, life and more. For example, I found the poem The Love of a Dog to be quite profound in its own simple way or try Friendships; that one rang so true to me.

I recommend this collection to anyone who would like to read something that inspires a few minutes of quiet contemplation.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Black & White publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
