"In this story-in-poems, Kami Westhoff offers us the journey of one woman's doomed marriage to a pedophile, each verse suggesting how tough it is to leave, to raise a baby on one's own. The images of this collection scrape & haunt: hay fields, jump rope chants, conjugal visits, breastmilk, the scent of an infant's messy diaper, a car's high beams 'insistent as a hang nail' all help us understand how the protagonist wrestles with the guilt and shame that should belong to her daughter's father. These beautiful, dark, narrative poems complicate notions of what it means to be a victim and a mother."--Page [4] of cover.
