The Lioness Awakens by Lauren Eden is a recent book that I purchased at B&N (Barns & Noble) that is one of the best collections of poetry that I've read in a long time. The poetess is from Australia and has a short crisp style of poeting that I particular enjoy and practice. The work is divided into five sections: Prey, Captivity, Sharpening the Claws, Nine Lives, and Pride. She writes about life's challenges from the female perspective. I know for me her poetry resonated so very deeply.
