-- Jay Parini, Author of The Art of Subtraction: New and Selected Poems and Robert Frost: A Life
"Darlene Franklin-Campbell’s gem-like poems depict a people who know hard times."
-- Sherry Chandler, Author of Weaving a New Eden
“Darlene Franklin-Campbell adds her poetic voice, which sings, wails, remembers, mourns, and rejoices, to the literature of Appalachia.”
