Hope Anita Smith brings the love of a mother to life with her collection of poems. In each poem, the reader can picture it as if it were their own experience. In "While I Was Sleeping" the poetry takes a turn as she relives her mother's death. From then on, the poetry has more of a somber tone. Although many readers cannot directly relate with such a loss at a young age, chances are they have known at least one little girl whose mother has passed. This collection of poems would be great to share not only with the bereaved but also with children who have friends that have lost a mother. ( )

Like Ms. Smith, my mother was so very important to me. Her loss was devastating. These poems help you to face your loss and move ahead, with your memories held close to your heart. Thank you, Ms. Smith. ( )
