The poems in to linger on hot coals are like the babies who inspired them: small but profoundly significant, and imprinting those they touch with both delicious sweetness and heartbreaking pain. They will speak to those whose grief is new as well as to those whose losses have receded in time but not in memory, as well as to counselors, medical professionals, and allies of bereaved families. A breathtakingly beautiful collection. ? Janel Atlas, editor, They Were Still Born: Personal Stories about Stillbirth "Most of the time, we consider grief ugly, and most of the time it is. But, sometimes you find something that moves that kind of loss beyond horror to something clear and pristinely honest ? beautiful ? Stephanie Paige Cole and Catherine Bayly have collected a deeply beautiful gift of poetry in to linger on hot coals." ? Melissa Miles McCarter, editor, Joy, Interrupted: An Anthology of Motherhood and Loss "to linger on hot coals is a collection of beautiful, personal poetry by women who lay bare their experiences of loss and love, reminding me again that what is the most personal is the most universal. These works will linger in your mind, break your heart, and touch your soul." ? Sean Hanish, writer/director/producer. "Return To Zero"
