Passion. Laughter. Divorce. Mom bodies. Beauty. Truth. Ferocity. Forgiveness. Love. Laundry. From the outstanding to the unexpected, this essential collection will put a lump in your throat, set your soul on fire, and remind you of who you are and how you want to live your life.

Edited by acclaimed poet and author Georgia Heard, who became acutely aware of the beauty and power of poetry when working on an anthology of poems to comfort children after September 11th, The Woman in this Poem features the work of both renowned and lesser-known female poets from the past 150 years.

Organized into five thematic sections centered on the topics of Love, Motherhood, Work, Family and Friends, and Balance, this book offers not only wisdom, comfort, reckoning, and redemption to readers of any age or gender, but it also reminds us of how pleasurable and enriching it can be to lose ourselves in the power of well-crafted words.
