Publisher's Summary

In her first collection of poetry, Jewel deals with such uniquely human themes as first love, the fading of passion, the giving of trust, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy. The Alaska native writes with frankness and honesty. She is serious and suddenly playful, but always compelling.

Good But Incomplete

Any additional comments?

I purchased the hard copy of this book some years ago and enjoyed it. Her poems of Alaska reminded me of my boyhood home in Northern Idaho.

The audio recording was especially enjoyable because is was read by the author. Not only did I get to hear the poems as she intended them to be read but she has a pleasant voice.

My only disappointment is that the introduction and afterward were not included. The introduction was especially important in that it introduced her work and told how the book came about in the first place.

Great book, but poor audio quality.

I have the CD version of this and love it. I purchased the audible version and immediately notice the voice was off. I checked and changed the speed to no avail. Eventually I noticed a familiar vibrato of a cassette recorder. I believe this was recorded from a poorly operating cassette player.

I checked the CD audio, and confirmed the significant difference. I am returning the Audible version due and will just load the CD copy on my devices.

My favorite book of poetry ever!

I love all of the poems in this book. But that’s because I find them relatable and also comforting. I used to have this audiobook on cassette tape and I would listen to it every night with my headphones until I fell asleep. That was 20 years ago and I still enjoy it now.
