When Light Shifts
A finalist for the 2022 Sheila Margaret Motton Book Prize
In this collection, Jennifer L Freed evokes from multiple perspectives the aftermath of her mother's cerebral hemorrhage, exploring themes of identity and ability, loss and healing, and the altered relationships that emerge from family crisis.
"Freed’s poems are precise, but never unfeeling, and she is alert to the moments when words won’t take us where we need to go. These poems operate in the deepest wells of experience: fear and frustration and love and pain."
--Nina MacLaughlin for The Boston Globe May 19, 2022
