Cranberry Beads is a collection of poems that describes the author's journey through early life.
This book is her voice -- bright, perceptive, vivid, and sometimes bittersweet. Striking imagery and keen observations address subjects that include departure of family and friends, survival paths, and destinations.
Many of life's lessons described are still worn as a talisman, "strung together like cranberry beads, fastened with a silver clasp."
