A journey into darkness and back to the light. The Moon makes it look so easy.

Winner of the 2016 Royal Dragonfly Book Award, Moon Full of Moons is a collection of poetry about resilience, renewal, and creating a deep happiness in the midst of sadness and ongoing loss.

The book is divided into nine chapters, each named after a phase of the moon. Moon Full of Moons describes a journey of survival, empowerment, and a determination to discover a light that has known darkness. This moving collection of over 100 poems explores innocence, love, mental illness, family, grief, forgiveness, healing, acceptance, and joy.

Raw and honest with lush, evocative imagery, Moon Full of Moons is "self help in a whole new way" that encourages acceptance and a commitment to live, “regardless of external anything”.

Everything is made from the remnants of what was. So - yes - you can build from it again.

"Kat Lehmann writes in an honest, magical way, opening up fresh possibilities the mind and heart. Every word and phrase in the book reeks of so much soul, giving one hope and joy as one traverses through this journey." - Barnes & Noble reader

"A gentle refocus from the wise and gifted Kat Lehmann." - Amazon reader

"A delightful and deep book of words and wonder for the phases of life, love, loss, and renewal." - Amazon reader

"I will read and reread it as nourishment for my soul." - Amazon reader
