This collection from Peterborough poet Betsy Struthers explores what it is to be living at the beginning of a new century in the middle of an ordinary life – that of a wife, a mother, a woman who works and travels, and reads and remembers. Through the calm contemplation of sensation and experience, these poems discover the extraordinary in the dailiness of existence, how life and love continue even in times of loss, both personal and political. It is these moments of awareness coming to life through image and cadence, sound and sense that give these poems their truth. Born and raised in Toronto, Betsy Struthers has lived in Peterborough, Ontario, since 1977.
