Dancing with my Daughter
By Jayne Jaudon Ferrer

     This book of poetry delves into the special bond that exists between mothers and daughters. From infancy to adulthood, Ferrer lyrically expresses the heartaches, joys, frustrations, and turbulence that often define this unique relationship. Some poems rhyme, others do not, still others are written more as specific thoughts but the end creation is a nice volume of poetry to be shared with daughters and their mothers.

   Ferrer seems to find greater inspiration in the turbulence than the joys, which offers readers an alternative to the overly-sentimentalized poetry books with the same theme.
