Description

To let go of the past and present circumstances that cause us grief, we must first come to terms with our place in the universe.

In Jerry Lovelady's latest poetry collection, Grief and Her Three Sisters, he explores the sweet sadness of grieving and feeling the full weight of our regrets. His poems illustrate how grief contains beneficial tools for solving the complex problems associated with living. If poetry can truly heal the soul with its wit, its wisdom and its imagery, this book does it all.  

These poignant passages reveal our secret longings and regrets which guide our near escapes into the fond memories of our pleasant past. Lovelady's poetry engages the reader with a subtle spiritualism that is laced throughout this collection, chocked full of remarkable, insightful life's lessons.

Advance Praise

 “Lovelady’s nature-infused poems in Grief and Her Three Sisters are streaked with the silver gray of wisdom, pride and acceptance. And, as typical of a fine writer, his personal jour-ney is transformed into one that so many of us recognize. 

As he says in his poem, “Such is Poetry,” these are ‘words to mend…troubled souls.’” 

– Hiram Larew, author of Mud Ajar 

“Each poem has a life of its own, breathing with life, love and loss. Lovelady’s work touches each reader with familiarity comparing his thoughts and emotions to our own self-reflections. We can all connect these threads with our own whether being in love or in loss. The subjects of each poem are insightful and deeply moving in breaths that breathe life into the readings. Beautifully discharged from his heart to his keystrokes, to each page we readers see even our own reflections upon the pages.” 

– Myrtle Thomas, author of As Time Goes By: a Year Down the Road

"Jerry Lovelady is clearly devoted to the art and crafting of poetry, equally at home in free verse or rhyme, with subjects ranging from stars and mythological gods to simple, homespun touches - enjoying hot cocoa and doughnuts in childhood, sweeping a roof or mowing the lawn in manhood."

-Feathered Quill

" Soulful and eye-opening"

Featured Reviews

Grief and Her Three Sisters by Jerry Lovelady is a beautiful and, at times, heartbreaking collection of poems of longing and regret. Each poignant verse is infused with the personal voice of experience, and much resonated within my very soul in the familiarity of grief and despair, but also as a subtle nudge toward the power that is held within a memory. By incorporating the elements of nature throughout, Lovelady reminds us of the infinite hope that comes from a life lived most fully. There is a lesson here for us all.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Atmosphere Press for an ARC.
