This collection of poems traces the journey of motherhood, and for me as a childless male reader, much of it speaks to things that are outside of my experiences and understandings. But I enjoyed these poems nonetheless, and "The Big Quiet" especially stands out as a meditation on the values that a parent can try to install in a child.
