Although not an avid reader of poetry but I have dabbled in fine literature such as Shakespears Sonnets, love poems of Browning and spiritaul inspirations of the Psalms. This book on peotry has given a real life perspecitive of love, pain, understanding and a connection to inner-personal feelings that helps one relate to what the author is writing about and makes you feel as if you are almost there with them at the same time going through it all.
I loved this collection of poems by Nancy Tupper Ling! Her poems made me both laugh and cry. I felt a real connection to her as a mother and would recommend this book to any mother, father, grandparent or person thinking about becoming a parent. Her journey in these poems is so real and touches on such deep issues. I especially loved her writing on the challenges of infertility and her joy at overcoming these. Her honesty and openness was very refreshing. Laughter in my Tent is a book that one could read over and over again and gain new depths of understanding from each time.
This collection of poems represents a microcosm of life for women everywhere. Ms. Ling's love, laughter, and joy of life are evident along with her corresponding struggles and fears. This book is worthy of a place on your coffee table or book shelf to be read many times over.
