There are 46 poems in this volume (the author's second full-length collection), divided into four sections. The author's first book, "The Ninety-Third Name of God" , introduced us to her family and especially to her diagnosis--inflammatory breast cancer--the disease discovered in 2004 during her pregnancy, the disease that claimed that claimed her life in August, 2018, when she was forty-nine-years old. This second collection continues Silver's illness narrative, poems that might serve as a journal of her journey through treatment, anger, despair, determination, and faith.
“Strawberries in Snow" was first published in the Bellevue Literary Review (V12N1). You can read it here:
