The author was born in Poland in l942, placed in an orphanage and reclaimed by Freda, her mother, after the war. Her family of survivors built a good life in Canada and left spoken, written and taped testimonies of their war experiences.
Vivian Kearney's poetry collection is first a memorial and a response to the tragedies. It then describes Freda's dying days which felt like the end of an era since she was the last of the family's war survivors. Finally, the author wishes to share a light of hope for redemption through creativity - in this case poems that pray for a changed, kinder humanity.
