    Filled with love..

    Jerry Fagnani draws on his experiences growing up in Pennsylvania.. Fagnani transports readers to the special places that give him love, peace, and comfort. The most poignant pieces are the Elanie Collection. The deep raw emotion of losing his wife comes screaming through the lyrics.

    I am not a big fan of poetry but I love this book. Too often poets are vague and hard to interpret. But not with Fagnani. He has a unique ability to share his feelings, emotions, and thoughts. He shares poems filled with love.

    Thank you Jerry Fagnani

    It is but a small book only fory seven pages long. What effect could forty seven pages have on someone? What could be taught or learned you may ask? I have discovered the love of poetry in just forty seven pages. The first section of 'A Kinder Bright' I have felt sorrow and regret. That time--is passing as we grow older and we have not finished all the things we wanted to do in our life time. The second section I have felt the gentle joy of freedom from the eyes of a child. I followed the author and walked along the trails and lake with him. I have discovered the beauty of Lackawanna, Pennsylvania. In the final phase 'The Elaine Collection', I discovered the power of words. I have cried for Jerry as he clearly mourns the loss of his precious Elaine. I believe in another time they will meet, and become one again. That Elaine will be waiting with open arms. Just forty seven pages of a little book that has filled my heart, mind and soul. I do not have to think and wonder what the author was trying to say. To all who may read this you will be transported to a new level in your life. One filled with the beautiful words of poetry. I have never cared for poetry until I read 'A Kinder Bright'. As the author has said:' We often choose to remember our brightest memories. But certain brightness can be harsh. For me I prefer a kinder bright.' There are not enough words to describe what I have felt reading this book. So I will just say thank you Jerry Fagnani. A five star book
