‘Psalms of survival’

March 23, 2014

Many thanks to Martin Achatz, an editor at Passages North, for this review of Hold Still in his Saint Marty blog. An excerpt:

“These poems are a testament to anger and humor, despair and joy. They are psalms of survival.  Breast cancer. Childhood. Motherhood. Hurricanes. Godbey’s insights are razor-sharp, cutting open the reader’s heart and pumping it full of music and hope. … In the middle of a long winter of heartbreak and ruin, her poems push through the impossibly frozen ground, unfolding petal by petal, syllable by syllable, into the promise of spring.”
