A River Remains based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book ties us all together in poem after poem. Treating working class roots, family relationships, surviving cancer and retirement, it reveals what sustains us.
A great gift for yourself or someone you love. This is a beautiful, personal collection of poems. The author gives a gentle insight into the very real pains and pleasures of life. While it comes from one man's experience of life, the emotions and struggles are universal. The poems face life directly, boldly. Highly recommend!
