What Amazon Says
The latest poetry chapbook by poet and publisher Cristina M.R. Norcross. Published by Local Gems Press.
Unfortunately, this collection is only available in paperback format. But thanks to Charles Portilano, editor of The Avocet, I, along with other subscribers, received it in a pdf document that I could read with synthetic speech, which I use because of my limited vision.
Some of the poems in this short collection are about nature while others touch on different subjects. Despite the vivid imagery, this author’s work seems to have a soothing quality. If you like poetry and want a short, nice, quiet read, this book is for you.
By the way, for those of you who use the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled, The Red Dress is available for download from their site here. No matter how you read it, please be sure to review it wherever you can. That goes for all my books. Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe, happy, and healthy.
New! The Red Dress
Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books
When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
