Twists and Turns in the Hearts, Minds, and Lives of Women
Joan Hough Harrington, author
With exuberance and joie de vivre, author Joan Hough Harrington explores the twists and turns in the hearts and minds of women in this unique compilation of her writing. By turns romantic, sad, amusing, and philosophical in tone, Harrington's work considers a wide range of topics, including friendship, familial and romantic love, inspiration, conflict, and everyday life. Her clear perspective relies on neither rose-colored glasses nor the murky lens of disappointment and depression. In her verses Harrington shares the occasional sly smile along with the experiences, heartaches, wishes, and dreams of women of various ages, as well as her own understanding of death's effect on the living. She also presents a selection of narrative poems and a series of brief prose essays. Created with women in mind, this collection of light poetry and prose offers a look into the hearts and minds of women, indulging in thoughts of romance and of life's joys and sorrows.
