Jeanie_book“Witty and wise, these well-crafted poems describe one woman’s life-long search for meaning from early childhood to anticipation of the inevitable coup de grace. Jeanie Greensfelder shares her journey with tender acceptance of her many selves, her flaws and achievements, loves and losses, and we respond with deep pleasure because we recognize her story as our own.”  —Margaret Van Every, author of A Pillow Stuffed with Diamonds, Saying Her Name, and holding hands with a stranger

It’s like a freshly opened box of chocolates, begging us to read just one more. Greensfelder reveals herself in such a way that we can see our own souls reflected in hers.” – Susan Stewart, Say It Write
