In this collection, Mary Christine Kane honors the complicated experience of childhood with a range of voices including a motherless child, a girl who collects toy rings and the adult looking back in longing. The poems remind us what comfort and longing feel like by opening the interior life of children—both moments like rolling down a grassy hill but also those of trying to reconcile life’s hardest topics.
