"Passionate and lyrical language." —Nance Van Winckel
“The poems . . . are darkly personal and introspective, yet they glow like stained glass windows when the sun sets behind them.”
--Karen Westeen, The Tacoma Weekly
“Her work combines a compelling interplay of personal narrative and intriguing social tensions. She maneuvers through intense, carefully chosen, but passionate and lyrical language.”
--Nance Van Winckel, author of Pacific Walkers
"Jeanne Rogers honors the natural and human world as one. Cherish this book. Live with it daily. She knows how to praise."
--Marilyn Krysl, author of Swear the Burning Vow
The poems in Through the Cattails paint the hues of women's lives
with humor, honesty and heart-opening imagination. Strength and generosity
of spirit comprise this Western poet's work. Time and again,
the mundane becomes transcendent.
