it was amazing
bookshelves: new-england, poetry, ecolinguistics

Liz Ahl's poetry is always beautifully crafted, but this collection in particular is a stunner. The strength of the collection lies in her ability to make even the most mundane aspects of New England life sparkle with a twist of humor or a quirky thought. I, like her, am from away. And I, like her, connect with the landscape and culture here in Northern New Hampshire. How perfect, then, that I found a collection of poems explaining the "why" of my fascination with my new home.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. Certainly a must-read for anyone who's lived in or visited the White Mountains or Lakes Region.
