Most of the time we look at our lives from the back side of the tapestry. All we see are loose threads, tangled knots, and the mistakes we made in the process. Once in awhile, we see the light shining through the weaving and the larger design appears, the beautiful side that everyone else sees. In this, her first book of poems, Sharon Canfield Dorsey weaves a poetic pilgrimage through life’s maze of joy, pathos, obstacles, and victories. Told with honesty and humor, it is a reminder that the human spirit overcomes, heals, and finds joy at all ages.

That I know how to write a poem.
But rhyming’s hard, goodness knows
So I had better stick to prose.Whew! Glad that’s over. To the point here: After you read this lovely book you’ll know what it’s like to be part of Sharon’s lovely family. And you’ll have a new slant on some other things, too, such as That Other Woman.
