Description of the Book:


"Peace Trumps Place" is a window into the mind of the poet, who is an adoptee. The collection of poems is a reflection of her personal journey, which has been shaped by the duality of her existence. As an adoptee, she has grappled with the complexities of identity, belonging, and acceptance. On one hand, she is grateful for the life opportunities of being adopted. On the other hand, she is acutely aware of the loss and trauma that comes with not knowing of her biological roots.

The poems in this collection explore the emotions and experiences that arise from this duality. The poems touch on themes such as loss, love, self-discovery, and resilience. Through her words, the poet invites the reader to share in her journey, and to gain a deeper understanding of the adoptee experience.

"Peace Trumps Place" is a powerful collection of poems that speaks to the heart of what it means to be an adoptee. It is a tribute to the strength and resilience of those who have experienced the pain of separation, and a testament to the power of love and connection in healing the wounds of the past.
