Here are reactions from readers ranging in age from early-40’s to mid-60’s.
"What a beautiful book."
"I experienced tears, fear, laughter, support, and sense making for my relationship(s) journey. It reminded me… that I am wonderfully human, with a range of emotions, memories, and experiences… that I am capable and deserving of love… that I have loved and have been loved in the most exciting ways… and that the best is yet to come!"
"This took me back to a time in my life when I was unafraid...when I believed that being connected was enough... and to remember that believing is still enough, if I am just willing to DANCE, laugh and smile."

"Refreshing in its utter directness and brutal honesty."
"Each time I would start to read one of the poems, I would immediately slip into the arms or angst of the person it brought to mind… What a safe place to be in conversation with my heart."
