Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 098014180X, Paperback)

"To read Martha O. Adams is to want more...to dance, to sing, to weep. Adams is up there in the genius category with women like Marge Piercy and Glenis Redmond"
The Rev. Carter Heyward, PhD; Professor Emerita of Theology

"Her gritty poems hold us in the terrible immediacy of the intimate. To read her poetry is to be changed."
Alice Abel Kemp, PhD; Emeritus Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies

"Adams' poems are fearless, yet rendered with humility. They pose questions, present challenges, and urge us to blossom, to sing. She shines her poetic light on hypocrisy, inviting participation, recognition and change. Filled with jazz/hip-hop musicality, her poems seek to keep the human in humanity, the moral in morality, and family in all the faces of humankind."
Richard Fewell, Playwright; Who's Who Among African Americans

"Adams weaves her words with delicate care, giving readers a great depth of character and strong sense of place in each poem, taking us to oases of beauty and serenity, and also into the darkest corners of the human experience."
Mary Garrison; Times-News columnist and author
