"The poems in Hoods of Motherhood evoke that bond. The author writes to know herself as a person. A poet, a woman, a wife, the mother of three sons, a daughter and a granddaughter, she thrives in her roles, and as a member in her community, and in the community of all mothers. In her thriving, borne of struggle and joy, she weaves a tapestry of language, poems that are lyrical, sensual, and spiritual."
