This collection by Colorado poet Shirley Van Cleef Sullivan explores the themes of aging, divorce, cancer, and loss with raw honesty yet also celebrates the healing we find in the natural world. 

“[A] journey through divorce, breast cancer, and the trials of aging — is rendered in poems that are at once bracing and empathic.”
—John Brehm, Help Is on the Way

“In Shirley Sullivan's collection of poems, Find Praise for January, she exposes us to the raw and tender core of this wintry month with breathtaking honesty and piercing imagery.”
Martha Kalin, Afterlife and Mango 

Shirley Sullivan’s poetry sings strong and clear, the hallmark of a voice shaped by the wisdom of years.”
Joy Roulier Sawyer, Angels and Lifeguards
