In Abbie Copeland’s debut poetry collection, A Brave Crescendo, she explores what it means to be a woman navigating family and relationships as a mother, lover, daughter, and sexual abuse survivor. Helen Fremont, author of After Long Silence, writes, “Abbie Copeland’s A Brave Crescendo presents a fresh poetic voice – strong and thrilling in its courage and accomplishment. Charting the dangerous territory of sexual abuse, family, and fraught relationships, these poems are sharply observant and brilliantly controlled.” Dina Paulson-McEwen, author of Parts of Love, writes “Familia is commemorated, a no-judgment zone where lineage is agent. Embodied memory welcomes an effortless reader.”
