"In Casa de mi Corazon: A Travel Journal of Poetry and Memoir, Lindsay Soberano Wilson demonstrates the beauty and optimism of travel writing in both poetry and prose. Soberano-Wilson further acknowledges the benefits and education of travel and the importance of experiences outside the safety of one's home. The poems provide a rich comparison of modern travel to past history, maintaining a positive tone while recognizing the good and bad of Jewish history. The author allocates her experiences as if giving gifts, not bragging but sharing, with the open-mindedness of curiosity and love, of observation and understanding. The prose pieces further illustrate the perspective of gaining wisdom through new experience, both in terms of geography as well as identity. Soberano Wilson exemplifies strong, specific imagery, and she proves the wonderful impact of travels and self-rumination culminating in an outlook of hope. Casa de mi Corazon: A Travel Journal of Poetry and Memoir is in itself a service of luscious landscapes and a cheerful chant for a more peaceful and loving future."
