Review of Secrets in the Sand: The Young Women of Juarez

After reading The Heart is Not a Size, you may want to learn more about the people of Juarez. Lu of Regular Rumination recently reviewed Secrets in the Sand: The Young Women of Juarez by Marjorie Agosin. She says:

What struck me most about this collection of poetry is how quiet it is. What I mean by quiet is not that these poems are not full of anger, sadness and pain, because they are. But there is a silence in this verse that is palpable, that appears in almost every poem. It is found in between every line, it is found in the blank space on the page, it is in everything that is said about these women, but what is not said. It is contemplation and meditation; it is a slow burning sadness that fills page after page of haunting images. It is brutal and it is beautiful at the same time.
