HiveHive by Christina Stoddard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A devastating collection about a strict Mormon upbringing and its aftermath. The poems here do not shrink away from the horrors, but still find beauty and hope in their midst. Highly recommended.

[Caveat: I know Christina personally, but I've always been amazed and impressed by her talent.]
