Synopses & Reviews
A collection of poems that explores why we believe and why, sometimes, we don't.
What do you believe in?
What makes you doubt?
These are questions that people have grappled with since the beginning of time. Acclaimed anthologist Patrice Vecchione sees this struggle between faith and doubt in many places from religion, to politics and war, to love, to the act of writing itself. Here she has gathered an extraordinary collection of poems that explore the many facets of human faith and doubt.
"Lucky are those who stumble upon this unassuming but powerful read." VOYA
"[A] diverse and well-rounded collection, balanced by both the insightful introduction and the brief but interesting biographies of the poets, which touch on the topics at hand." School Library Journal
