To the girl who never was . . . and all she'd dreamed she'd be.
When chained to a past that offers no hope for the future, where does the responsibility lie? If given the chance to start again, would the courage be found to take it? Clarity is found in the moments between the beats. Flat-line flashbacks when the victim awakes to the truth that hope is something only she can foster.
Journey through a lifetime in verse. Face all the characters and moments that shape us and break us. Do you have the courage to stop . . . to listen to the moments between the pulse? To dance the edge of the flatline and surface to a brand new beginning?
Out of the chaos of life, unnamed heroes are born.
In her second collection, Nova Scotia poet Natasha Head takes us on a fictional journey of a modern-day phoenix. Venture through the moments between the heartbeats, where baggage and guilt collide, strings are cut, and the hero rises to begin her life anew.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Pulse is incredibly gritty, compelling and thought provoking. This is the first story of its kind that I have read a story in prose and I really enjoyed it. I don’t want to give away the story, but as a parent it truly sent shivers up my spine in regards to the worst kind of life a person have growing up. The turn of phrase and the events of the story were witty and cruel as were some of the characters in the story. There is no real innocence in this book only the mourning of innocence never known. During the time that I was reading this book, it often demanded that I stop and really think about what I had read. You sometimes need a moment to digest the events taking place. This would make a fantastic book for a discussion group and is meant for a higher caliber reader. If you want to read a book that will really make you ponder life and how good you have it, read Pulse.
