With over thirty poems in Among the Dying Violets by Barb Shadow, the author did not disappoint. Poems like Grandpa, My Father, Unspoken, and Moms Don't Die reflect the personal encounters of the author as rawness, fear, and memories flooded the pages. As the reader turns each page they will encounter a wave of emotions from familiarity maybe pertaining to their personal story to staring into the abyss of the author's journey. Read, reflect, embrace, release, share and heal during your time in reading this book of poems.
