Reviews - What do customers think about The Hourglass Heart (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?
Speaking to my heart Aug 18, 2004
The first stanza of The Tenth Muse continues to "bring me to my knees." Gail expresses in a few lines the excruciating pain of loving someone who is suffering from a mental disorder. By authentically and generously sharing her humanity she offers us the spiritual teaching and healing of knowing that we are not alone.
Love this collection! Jul 17, 2004
Gail Martin's poetry is brave and honest and treats pain with such beautiful language a reader is transported. Gail has a deft touch with humor also in several of her poems. I loved reading this collection over and over and will be very eager to follow this poet's continued success. Do yourself a big favor and buy this collection. You can't help but love her "Beckon Road" series and the wonderful "God Vacuums the Pool" etc. series. The poems all share a wisdom and grace born from looking at pain with a clear eye.
