April the witch doesn't burn in this one
2016 Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet Amanda Lovelace returns in the witch doesn't burn in this one - the bold second book in her "women are some kind of magic" series. The witch: supernaturally powerful, inscrutably independent, and now-indestructible.
Leaving behind the softness of her previous collection, ‘the princess saves herself in this one’, ‘the witch doesn’t burn in this one’ holds back no emotion. It is dark and brutal - full of blood and fire. Anger and a need for both redemption and revenge ripples through the collection as the narrator comes to terms with her own self-worth and past traumas.
These moving, relatable poems encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, BUT ‘the witch doesn’t burn in this one’.
Through stories of witches and fire, Lovelace’s poems spread a message of endurance and the power of women around the world. A fiery and compelling book for fiery and compelling women.
