    Book Review

Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

If you are a poetry fan, this will be a book to give you substantial food for thought. "The Suns Snow and the Sands Move" by C. JoyBell C. is one of those books in which certain of the poems will hit home and perhaps, have an effect of healing or at least, relating to the experiences of others. Many of the most poignant and memorable pieces were those written in prose in which the author appeared to allow her mind to wander freely and she simply recorded her thoughts on paper. Some of the more memorable such pieces were entitled 'A Captain's Oath,' 'The Woman in the Sunlight,' and 'The Truth about Poison.'

Perhaps my personal favorite was the prose entitled 'The God With Eyes Which Have No Color.' This and several others of the poems would be excellent choices for a college literary course in which various interpretations could be offered and discussed. 'Diamonds and Skulls' is another such poem. For readers who have visited Rome, there are several offerings which will surely trigger fond and pleasant memories. One of the most provocative of all the poems is one entitled 'The Brotherhood of the Fathers.' Without giving away the gist of the thought behind the poem, anyone with a modicum of historical memory will be bothered by the suggestions contained in the thoughts - and rightfully so! And for those of you who have loved and lost and dared to love again, oh yes, there is enough angst between the book covers to please you all.
