The majority of the poems in Motherland were penned in the wavering, wondering hand of a woman navigating her first pregnancy. These poems ask questions of the future and reflect on the past, they are a fervent search for instruction, for meaning, in the stories of mothers, grandmothers, and other mothers. An accessible and enjoyable collection, Motherland is at times sweet, anxious, dark, joy-filled, and raw. In essence, it’s much like motherhood itself.
