“Here’s how to read this collection: not politely, nibbling, with tea, no, but in a binge, with your bare hands, spilling and slurping. Athena’s harvest is in.” ~ Todd Boss, author of Yellowjacket and Pitch
“Athena Kildegaard’s new collection is going to make a lot of people sigh and wonder where they went astray on the road of love.” ~ Joyce Sutphen, Minnesota poet laureate
This book grew from a year of writing a love poem every day — a labor of love!
