Stained Glass by Joanna Kurowska
New Poetry Release
"Excellent and thoughtful book of poetry."
There is a mystery regarding the book's cover... The street behind the glass is in an ancient town in Poland. The cobblestones are still there, so are the trees that once rustled over an old Jewish cemetery...
Almost forgotten now, the cemetery reappears in Stained Glass, along with the people who once lived, loved, suffered--and laughed. Recalling the magic of those times, Stained Glass depicts the journey of a person who has left the world of her childhood and youth to try a new life--across the ocean.
