“No one but Night, with tears on her dark face,
Watches beside me in this windy place.”
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Night Is My Sister”
Inspired by the works of the troubled, Bohemian poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay, I wrote FALLEN BEAUTY in the dark of winter, and it should be read in the dark of winter. It is a book about how cruel we can be to one another, how our judgements are often condemnations of our own guilty secrets, and how love between friends and companions may grow in unexpected places.
I have a copy of FALLEN BEAUTY to giveaway. Please comment below on your favorite poem by Millay, or your thoughts on winter, and share the post on some form of social media to be entered into the drawing. The giveaway will close at 9 PM ET on Tuesday, January 13th, and is open to residents of the US and Canada.
