My Way to Anywhere

by Jean Lisette Brodey

4/5 stars

My Way to Anywhere is a profound and passionate collection of poetry. It felt as if the author connected deeply with the words she wrote. There is a heavy realism, that remains both beautiful and gentle. However, I was not as enthralled by the second half of the book. The children’s poems were wonderful but did have the same intensity. I believe children are capable of understanding a great deal and we should challenge them more thoroughly. That said, I am extremely grateful her daughter Lisette put the book together. It was a pleasure to read.
