How to Fly by Barbara Kingsolver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I didn't know Barbara Kingsolver wrote poetry, but I really enjoyed this
collection. I'd put it up there with Mary Oliver in thematic material
and think the same readers would like both. (That's high praise, I love
Mary Oliver!) - nature, aging, death & dying as part of life, wisdom

had a copy from the publisher through Edelweiss. It comes out in
September but I was worrying about my eARC expiring before I had a
chance to review it so here we are.
