What colleagues say about this charming and evocative collection

“In an age of conformist mediocrity, Elizabeth Bolton chose ‘the road less traveled by,’ and the difference is a joy to eye and mind. To read her is to bring her lilting voice to life. Her verses dance like sparklers on a dark night”.
—David Hedges, noted poet and writer; President, Oregon State Poetry Association; Board Member, Oregon cultural Heritage Commission

“Poet-play-write-novelist-teacher–Elizabeth’s talent as a writer was as rich and varied as her personality. She was as comfortable writing an essay as a sonnet. She excelled in many forms.”
—Doreen Gandy Wiley, author; poet; Founding Member, Oregon Writers Colony
