A rather beguiling find, a book I sculpted and stained into a peculiar shape and grotty hue , by carrying everywhere. The poems are an interesting exploration of youthful ,wounded humaness and religious certainty/ uncertainity -which becomes fresh when filtered through the eyes of someone wilfully distinctive in her abrasive dialoguing and defense of seemly fading traditions, and thought patterns, all mingled with unresolved deep human aches.

I decided to read this book because of a crisis of faith. Amber writes exceptional prose to deliver her point that it is okay to question your faith. This book also helped me get through some tough times, which was a pleasant surprise. I'm not typically a fan of poetry, but this book caught my attention and I would recommend it.
