I really enjoyed Carolyn's autobiography Surprised by Oxford and this collection of poetry from her did not disappoint. She has the art of seeing not only what appears to be but also what is. From "White Silence" come these words "the holiness of it all/ so loud around me/ that it can only settle into a/ silence unspeakably profound."

Once again, Carolyn’s writing makes you smile, ponder, wonder and pray. Themes of seasons and nature are prominent throughout this collection of poetry and remind you that observing a squirrel outside your kitchen window while drinking a cup of coffee can be much more than just that. While anyone will enjoy the references to nature, being a fellow Canadian, I appreciated the local-ness of these poems, also knowing these same trees and animals. Even after one reading, certain lines - artfully cra ...more

I had great expectations of 'Going Home' having been previously inspired by Carolyn Weber's 'Surprised by Oxford' and 'Holy is the Day'.

Blending two of her previously published poetry works (before only available as ebooks) with plenty of new material, it explores the feelings unearthed by a return home after a prolonged absence.

'Going Home' looks at old memories and places afresh with the added dimension that self discovery brings.

It is a sensitive and reflective work. I recommend it.

Hi I'm Carolyn. I taught literature to undergrads for 15 years, but resigned my tenured position in a ginormous LEAP WITH FAITH (blogpost). When I am not enjoying time with husband and 4 spirited children under 8, I enjoy reading and writing. My previous (even bigger) "leap to faith" is detailed in my book SURPRISED BY OXFORD .
