Beate Sigriddaughter’s writing is fearless and lovely all at once. Her new novel, AUDREY: A BOOK OF LOVE, examines our  most precious, (and often all too fleeting), emotion in an honest, lyrical, and forthright way. Sigriddaughter’s language is musical, her characters spring from the page fully formed. We want to know them.  We want to embrace and protect them in their vulnerability and honesty. This book reinforces my belief that poets do indeed write the best prose. Here is a new fictive work with a voice that refuses to be silenced. Everyone should purchase and savor this novel. It’s truly one of those rare books other writers of any stamp will appreciate and save to read again and again.
