At My Mother's Door — Poems
by Joyce Rankin • with photos by Alfred LeBlanc • 26 poems • 24 photos • 56 pages
GOOD, READABLE POEMS, deeply respectful of traditional ways—especially of the work of women in shaping Cape Breton's life. "Talk around the kitchen table and true stories told while peeling apples."
"Rankin's women are as strong as steel, yet their tenderness brings tears to our eyes. Not only does she recreate for us the pioneer women of Cape Breton, she leaves us with an unerring sense that their strength and tenderness live on still in Cape Breton women today.... Like the poems, the photographs...are stunning in their definition."—Daniel Doucet, author
