“Mademoiselle Renoir à Paris”
LodeStar is a collection of poems that seeks to juxtapose the light and dark moments of life. Patricia Taylor Wells explores the longing of a broken heart as well as the magical power of infatuation. She addresses the complexities of faith, hope, and loss alongside the simplicity of creation. Like a light guiding us out of darkness, there is no better lodestar than a poem.
