Overview

A reviewer of the KBR Review Team calls this volume:
"Strange and wonderful, covering a lot of ground. Human and memorable, an interesting and difficult work to rate..."

"There is a wide range of material covering many situations. The human condition is explored in eleven prose pieces and twenty poems. Make that ten plus twenty one, as the opening prose piece is quite poetic, Summer’s Last Wild Irises.

You will be in a train in Russia, a garden at MIT, a boat in San Diego area, on the Eiger, and on the edge of a small lake. There is sadness in some of the love poems, and hope sometimes too. This poet isn’t afraid to make a little fun of herself as well, as in Pacific Ode. In Offshore Sailing you will find new and strong images.

Other poems are quiet, gentle reflections of nature. There is social commentary in A Common Feast, which takes place in a laundromat, and in A Conversation Between Friends, which almost becomes an argument.

In this second edition six new prose pieces have been added, plus one new poem, and they are strong. In Hugo you will feel the terror of being at sea in that hurricane

Journey to Kiev has been edited, and I like this version even better. This story should be re-read to appreciate how cleverly the situations are set up, and the passion allowed to come through. At the end we feel the protagonist’s regret, unforgettably caught up in a dream/nightmare train image, taking love away.

Conclusion: in Moments of the Heart, you are in for a strange and wonderful trip, a most interesting read. Many of the individual pieces are quite unique. This is a writer of wide range and strength. Recommended."
