The Blue Road – Poems of Marriage and Caregiving is a poignant debut collection of poems about honor, respect, commitment and love. Married for over five decades, and a caregiver for the last ten of those years, Marilynn Talal shares her experiences as wife and caregiver in twenty-one autobiographical poems that evoke tenderness, humor, sadness and longing. This emotionally intense collection evokes the triumphs, shortcomings and memories from a lifetime of marital intimacy.
“I just bought and read The Blue Road. It’s a moving account and exquisitely expressed. I particularly related to Bronze Plaques.” — Joanna H. Kraus
