Lafemina is a poet with a big heart and extremely capable hands, and herein is a fine collection of rich and savory poems divided between Brazil and the Caribbean. This book captures more than landscape and the way people live on the edge in differing cultures. Through a contrast between places and the voice of witness Lafemina bring these poems alive. It is easy for the poet to fall in love and his passion renders these poems both haunting and memorable.
