Thank you to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing me with a free copy of this book.
I have said it before and I will say it again, I have a difficult relationship with poetry. I was never really fond of it in school and often have a difficult time relating the words to what I feel of what I have experienced. That being said, I had absolutely no trouble relating to Courtney Peppernell’s words with her latest collection: Pillow Thoughts II.
We have all experienced loss. Whether it’s a friend you lost touch with, an ex-partner, or the very physical loss that comes with the death of someone close. But this isn’t a collection about loss. It’s a collection about healing.
I honestly don’t know enough about poetry to accurately discuss the structure of Peppernell’s poems but what I can say is you can find comfort in her words and they give the feeling of understanding and compassion. The feeling that you’re not alone in your pain. A truly wonderful collection.
