A beautiful book of poetry for women to refer to....

I am not much of a poetry person, but I really enjoyed this collection. I felt it achieved the authors intent, which was to explore various aspects of a woman's life through poetry. The Authors taste is excellent, and I found several pieces in each section very moving.

I thought it was poetry she herself had written through-out her life.

Poems that explore the stages of women's lives. Edited by the last survivor of American's golden royal family of the early 1960s.
