 About the Book 

Compassion, at its root, means feeling with, and these compassionate, moving, poems by Amy MacLennan lead us to experience the fragilities and concerns of people as different from each other as truck drivers, coal miners, a woman in labor, FinnishMoreCompassion, at its root, means feeling with, and these compassionate, moving, poems by Amy MacLennan lead us to experience the fragilities and concerns of people as different from each other as truck drivers, coal miners, a woman in labor, Finnish girls on an Italian beach, a Siamese twin, and Nancy Drew, and those of the poet herself, as she marks milestones on the path to acceptance of what life has in store.
