by Janine Mary Stefanucci-Hexter
Within is a collection of candid and intimate poetry examining the varied encounters of life. Mrs. Stefanucci-Hexter draws on her own life story, as well as the experiences of others, to offer a compelling and inspiring collection. The opening poem, Addiction, introduces an underlying theme:
Sobriety brings the past memories. Quitting is the easy part. As your body and mind returns, The reasons come back to the start.
With selections ranging from tales of despair and abuse to equally moving accounts of celebration and love, the author repeatedly affirms her faith in God and the human ability to persevere. Revealing and frank, Within is a portrait of the struggles and joys of life.
