This is the first poetry book I've ever read from start to finish. My heart broke (again) reading Teva's poems. They are sad, romantic, realistic. The linking drawings are lovely - reminding us of her other artistic talents. What strength she had to write as her health failed. What an expression of love she has left as a legacy.

Teva’s words are beautiful, honest and heartbreaking. I will treasure this book for a long long time. She has a way of giving me hope even in the face of dealing with cancer and death. Hope makes Life.
