During this tumultuous time, we are navigating a new world of feelings and desires in hopes that the object of our affection will return the same, but that is not always the case.

Readers will find comfort, encouragement, and familiarity in her verses and will be inspired to share their own voice. Patrice’s collection is a guide and safe haven for all those who seek it.
