Full review at my book blog
*I was a beta reader for McKayla's collection*

I have read a lot more poetry this year than in previous years, and it's been stunning.

I'd previously read Bones in the Garden and enjoyed it, but this, this - the book was divided into two sections, "Darkness" and "Light", and it was oh-so-perfect.
