My poetry press, Moon Pie Press of Westbrook, Maine, published this book, and I chose it. I can speak to why. This is a fascinating collection which I think is very strong. It is rich in different cultures and places and ranges from intimate domestic meditations to poems exploring more global ideas. Natalya has a strong and consistent voice that is mature. These poems will move you and make you think.
