Well, one of my new year’s resolution was to read books outside my comfort zone. And hence this. I am not fond of contemporary poetry or free verse poetry, and from what I can think of, it’s because of my need for long verses and flowery language.

The Mermaid’s Voice Returns in This One is the third book in the Women are Some Kind of Magic series and this particular book talks about the Mermaid who had been a witch who had been a queen. A story that has themes of survival and longing, healing irregularly but hearing whatsoever.

My favorite bits were the verses told by these women from fantasy land and the ode to some famous poems and novels.

dis she, in her last waking moments, forgive him,

or was she silently sending her curses to the gods

who did not let the roof collapse on the notches of

her beloved’s traitorous spine, even if it proved

fatal for them both?

The verses are about raising your head and continue living because healing is a slow process. The verses also talk about the importance of speaking up or how toxic life can get. It is important to find one’s voice and not lets others walk all over you.

I will definitely be picking the first two books up. Amanda Lovelace is a strong voice, and I am sure she has helped a lot of people through her stories.
