Book Review: The Road Between

The Road Between

by Courtney Peppernell

Andrews McMeel Publishing


Pub Date 29 Aug 2017 

I am reviewing a copy of The Road Between through Andrews Mcmeel Publishing and through Netgalley:

Poetry is probably the most genre to review because it is one of the most personal forms of writing:  

This collection of poetry speaks a lot of sorrow and loss, a lot of the poems are sad, but the collection does not entirely lack hope.

I give The Road Between four out of five stars.
Happy Reading!
