0 Reviews
This latest collection of Sister Rashidah's poetry embodies a quietness that reflects deepness beyond its own words. Statements about memory, exhilaration and passion remind the reader that the heart and soul are the most expressive recorders of experience over the mind. Another notable and highly commendable work.
