    1. As someone who has experienced my own dark night of the soul, I know I ll be coming back to this beautiful collection again and again Morey s poems, which cover topics as broad as marriage and spirituality, motherhood and global warming, are at once both deeply personal and strikingly universal As with all good poetry, her detailed descriptions of her own unique experiences and emotions manage to speak profoundly into those of her readers I couldn t recommend this collection highly enough.

    2. A compilation of gorgeous words that resonate with my heart and soul So glad I ordered a paperback copy having Morey s words at my fingertips is a gift This is a collection that will be re read, there are just so many gems.ke this, My soul slips off its sandals at all this holy Breathtaking, right

    3. Read an early copy and fell in love with the way Beth puts words together A beautiful collection to read and re read time and again.

    4. The reason I was drawn to this book was because when people are feeling distant from God, often sermons and theology don t help as much as story or poetry, genres which tell the truth sideways, in a gentle way In this collection of poems, Beth Morey perfectly and beautifully articulates the emotions that accompany a dark night of the soul Beth Morey is a talented poet, and for me the greatest ones were poems such as You say and The Beetle which combine vivid storytelling with poignant emotion, r [...]

    5. I got an early copy of this and enjoyed it The book takes you on a beautiful raw bodily journey deep into the darkness and back out You ll want to keep a highlighter close so you can mark all the phrases you want to remember My favorite the spiritual disciplines Other Quotables when time s skin is thin and you are bared when she asks you to hold her soiled soul as softly as she s held yours I thought it was supposed to be straight and narrow, this way That s what everyone said we have forgotten [...]

    6. While poetry and the place it finds in your life is personal and therefore difficult to tell people Read this this body of work can be recommended just on the sheer musicality of the words I will be returning to savor those I enjoyed and even revisit others, if only for the imagery.

    7. Beautiful poetry of all temperatures, to be gobbled all at once or parsed out over time, words that connect the head to the heart.
