Admittedly I am just a smidge biased on this one as it is my book, but I can say that 12 out of 5 did I pour my whole heart and soul into these poems. They tell personal tales of failures and triumphs, loves and losses, and address my journey to learn faith in the face of adversity. I do hope that you all enjoy reading them as much as I treasured each moment writing them and that you are able to drop a rating or review here on Goodreads if you did!

I’m glad I read this poetry collection. When I reached "Starved," I had to put the book down and step away before coming back to it. It was that emotional and beautiful of a poem.

I’ll be gifting Unraveling Light to friends, and I look forward to seeing more of Darcy's work. ...more

It's not often that I pick up poetry books, but this was lovely. Elayna's words give a sense of shining optimism despite whatever struggles she has faced in her life. Loved the doodles scattered throughout too. Looking forward to what she puts out next. ...more
