The Last Star is the final book of poems in The Golden Passage, a trilogy by internationally known poet Charlotte Brady. The series boldly faces existential dilemmas that lie within each of us and releases profound responses that sweep across our minds and make us see ourselves and the world around us more clearly. Brady's method of acute observation combined with her lyrical use of language create a safe harbor for traveling beyond the boundaries of our minds and increasing our understanding of the human condition. Even though the destination is unknowable, the trilogy steadfastly moves toward truth and freedom. Traveling through fear, peace, acceptance, and joy, The Last Star concludes the trilogy by arriving at the simplest and purest place of perception: “Now: Dog. Sunshine. Water. Tree. This. Is. Is. Is. Is.” What lies beyond is for each and everyone to discover for themselves.
