“Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary,” 5 star review by Valerie J. Brooks on Good Reads
rating: 5 of 5 stars
status: Read in July, 2008
Janet Grace Riehl writes with the honesty, openness and heart of someone who deeply loves life, but is not shy at hitting, straight on, the messes we have to clean up or the sorrows we must bear.
Her collection, "diary" as she calls it, is a poetic memoir, a memorial to her family and ancestors. Filled with photos that enhance vs. detract, SIGHTLINES will unearth your own memories and stories.
As a writer, it was hard to read as each poem made me run for paper and pencil to jot down a toggled memory of my own.
