Synopses & Reviews
"A pilgrimage of sorts through growing old and facing death--subjects that caregivers know all too well. [Lynch's] upfront, unvarnished style is likely to resonate with many who have come face to face with life's most important questions."--Mary Plummer,
"Light in tone, [these poems] are at their core deadly serious. . . . They celebrate life, love, death, and literature."--
