Describing the unfolding of a single day in parallel with the seasons of the year, this poetry collection explores the human journey. From the dawn of the day to the last light of dusk, the author recalls voices that have fallen silent and uses lines full of imagery to evoke the stages of their lives, their secret songs and calls for help, torn between joy and pain, certainty and doubt, revolt and acceptance. With lucid understanding, the author uses the stories of her characters' lives to define her own more clearly. The French edition of this book, "Passerelles", won the 2010 Trillium Literary Award for Poetry in French.
