Review of The Marionette Heart Poetry

The Marionette Heart Poetry
by Jane Walsh 5 Stars
Title: Excellent!

Before I bought The Marionette Heart Poetry, I checked out the author, read the reviews, and clicked on the book to read a sample chapter of poems (like I always do). Knowing this was a collection of poems from a survivor of child abuse, I expected a lot of despair, hopelessness, and many visits to dark places.

Well, I got that and more—the pleasure of getting to know a strong woman who survived it all. Good for you, Jane Walsh. Your poetry is sad, but beautifully written. I almost cried at the dedication page. What does that tell you?
