Highly Recommended Review

"Highly Recommended" for Community 
and Academic Library Collections."

A Big THANK YOU  to Midwest Book Reviews for their review of Barbara Garro's poetry collection, Love Bites. Midwest has long been an excellent resource for both readers and authors.

Love Bites
Barbara Garro
Cambridge Books

When her mother died at an early age, Barbara Garro (now in her eighth decade) became powerfully propelled into poetry. Poem after poem, flows through her as she shares the spirit of a lifetime in innermost love thoughts, fears and dreams. Her debut collection of some of her best work, "Love Bites" showcases this lifelong author's genuine flair for deftly crafted verse. 

Barbara thinks of her poetry as her heart exploding with feelings that she dresses in words, dancing them into poems. Since her mom's death opened the floodgates, after "Remembering Mother" was published in The Maple Shade Progress, the poems kept coming, 998 and counting. Each holds her heart inside the lines. 

Barbara's hope is that her heart connects with yours as she shares her soft and hard feelings of love in Love Bites. While highly recommended (for) community and academic library Contemporary American Poetry collections, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of poetry enthusiasts that "Love Bites" is also available in a Kindle format ($6.50). 

Monkey Bread Love 

Again, like monkey bread 
I'm feeling torn apart. 
Again, my time with a man 
has taken me piece by piece. 
Again, I am left all eaten up.

LOVE BITES is available from in both paper and Kindle formats, and is also available from in various e-book formats.
