Inspired by the eloquent words of Nadine Stair, this absorbing collection is about women making choices. Some speak of lost opportunities: "I wait too long; I watch the moment pass / till only ashes stir upon the grass" or things they would do differently: "If I could begin again... let me begin again by being a better daughter." More often, however, these women proclaim a sense of satisfaction with their lives and "would not change a single breathless moment."
