Words of Alchemy (Book Review)

by Camilla Downs


4 / 5

I don't read a lot of poetry, and when I do it usually is more like the Odyssey or The Talking Horse and The Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea (Mark Haddon), but these were a simple and heartfelt collection valuing nature and family. I found them very thoughtful and elegant and I know a few people who would probably enjoy them very much. I don't have a lot more to say about them, other than my favourite of the bunch was The Key, but the reason I found the poems at all was that the author managed the Meet the Authors website where I was interviewed. The poems sounded nice to me, so I bought them for my kindle. I've included Camilla's information below!
