About the Book
The loss of a loved one is most certainly a tragic and very painful time in one’s life. The Ghost Girl Poems is Davan James Dodrill’s dedication to his wife, who passed from terminal ovarian cancer. It is his battle with grief and emotional confrontation after losing her, and it is also a testimony to the battle of change, emotional upheaval, recovery, moments of weakness, vivid attributes of awareness, spirituality, clarity of vision, and the impact of poetry in the course of healing while dealing with the loss of a beloved spouse.
