These deeply personal and transcendent poems will appeal to all who have ever questioned life deeply through the means of suffering, introspection and transformation. Absolution explores the journey from doubt and pain to acceptance, communion, and growth both in wisdom and in Love. This book includes such necessary themes as pain, illness, dying and death, fear, acceptance, love and prayer, bliss and ecstasy, and provides a refreshing perspective on the relationships between nature, self/other, and The Divine. Nancy's work appears in many journals, including most recently Bewildering Stories (where she also received a 2019 Mariner Award), January Review, Euonia Review, Blue Moon Literature and Art, The stray Branch, Down in the Dirt, and River Poets Journal's Seasonal and 2019 Special Editions. Her work has also been published in the anthology Sacred Voices: Essential Women's Wisdom through the Ages by Mary Ford-Grabowsky, and she is a past winner of the William G. Doody Memorial Prize for Poetry.
