Deeper Shades of Blue was written mostly right after my father died in 2012. Although some of the poems are about his death they always end up with redemption in the end with joy and peace through Christ Jesus. This book also talks about loves lost, but what is different about this book than my other one, Silence and Darkness, is that there is a new found hope for the hopeless and peace for those at unrest. Also, there is courage and strength found in these words. So I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did writing it.
