These are poems of fresh air at the beginning of a winter journey, and I breathe them in deep.
Praise for Unscathed by Jennifer Hambrick
“In Unscathed, there is a classical sense of what a poem is supposed to be – clean, sharp, in its moment. The collection rings with love throughout, in all its warmth and doubt. And while everything has already been said about love in this world, Hambrick grounds the matter with a fresh palette of questions, longings and unadulterated class. Pound for pound, a great first book of poetry.”
– Scott Woods, author of We Over Here Now
“With an eye for the cherished moment, Jennifer Hambrick captures the essence of love. Each of these poems pauses to look more closely, to reflect and bring to our attention the hope that accompanies the pang of loss and the ache of growing old, the way the body fails and yet the light of the spirit shines on. These are poems of fresh air at the beginning of a winter journey, and I breathe them in deep.”
– Sarah Wells, author of Pruning Burning Bushes
“The poems, delicate yet profound vignettes of childhood and mortality, nature and family, are sketched with a deft hand.”
– Dianne Borsenik, publisher, NightBallet Press
