Book Reviewer Angel says:
“Whistler of Petty Crimes is more than poetry…it’s a reflective journey that is easy to follow and love.
I really enjoy when a poetry collection intertwines the way this one, Whistler of Petty Crimes, does and gives a full picture. I especially love the format of having a series of poems, within the collection, each with its own special insight.
The series Modern His Way and also Here Then Gone touched my heart as the experiences told resonated with some of mine.
Overall, a beautiful collection of poems that fans of this genre will enjoy. I sincerely appreciate Novel Cause Publicity and the author for the review copy. While a review wasn’t mandatory, I have offered my opinion and these are my own thoughts.”
THANK YOU ANGEL!
And here’s one from Reviewer Aimee Dars Ellis:
“In WHISTLER OF PETTY CRIMES, Eileen Ike West presents a series of heartfelt story-poems that address her childhood, family—tensions between her parents, how she got her name “Ike,” the summer she was eighteen and sent to live with her ill grandmother in Sedona—and events in her life through and beyond the pandemic. They capture the hope and fear of youth and the loss and resignation of aging.
At times whimsical, at times heartbreaking, the language offers vivid metaphors. I particularly related to descriptions of the Arizona heat in summer! This is a great choice for those who are interested in reading more poetry and are looking for an accessible collection.”
AND I THANK YOU TOO, AIMEE! YOUR KIND WORDS ARE MOST APPRECIATED!
