Beschreibung

In "luminous moments told in lovely language," the poems of the Newbery Medal-winning author of Boris bring a rural woman to vivid life (School Library Journal). Cynthia Rylant returns to her home state of West Virginia with this powerful and evocative collection of poems. In a heartbreaking narrative that flows like a novel, we follow Ludie from childhood to falling in love and getting married, through the birth of her own children, and on into old age. This is the story of one woman's experiences in a hardscrabble coal-mining town, a story that brims with universal themes about life, love, and family-and all of the joy, laughter, heartache, and loss that accompany them. Would she tell you that six children were too many, that some disappointed, others surprised, but that, all in all, six were too many and one would have been just fine? Would she tell you that she married that boy at fifteen not only because he was tall and kind but also because she needed a way out? "A brilliant contribution to the growing collection of Appalachian literature that tells the story as honestly and purely as life in the mountains has always been and always will be." -Teenreads "A collection of Zen-like moments of self-discovery and serenity . . . A powerful read for young and old alike." -Kirkus Reviews
