Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 146819674X, Paperback)This 612-page combined volume of the verse novel "Depth of Focus" follows a young woman's journey into independence. But, leaving her past behind doesn't mean it will leave her alone in her future. Told through both poetry and what would appear to be normal prose, both books contain the exact same words. But, the stanzas reveal their rhythm.
Synopsis: After years of putting her family first, Danni decides it's finally time to take care of her own wants and needs. But, leaving everyone behind to follow her dreams in a new city presents its own set of challenges for the twenty-four-year-old aspiring photographer who didn't get to go to college when she had the chance. Without a scholarship, she's financially on her own.
As she struggles to balance a meddling roommate, nosy neighbor, former lover, current lover, mostly-absent father, jealous sibling, insecure best friend and suicidal mother with the demands of her lousy waitressing job, approaching birthday party and shrinking college fund, she realizes her dreams might not come true. Returning home a failure becomes more and more likely by the day. But, if she continues keeping everyone who cares about her at arm's length, she stands to lose a lot more than a promising career. She could lose her family and a shot at what she fears the most - falling in love.
