Detailed book overview
Amber Moss's emotional new poetry collection Bucket Of Thorns details the journey of a woman from adolescence to motherhood. In this coming of age story, the author documents love, loss, and overcoming domestic abuse. Moss's poetry is intimate and visionary. Divided into four sections, Bucket Of Thorns celebrates cutting the ties from men and surviving on one's self-love.
Welcome to the pages of To Her. This poetry book is for the woman that secretly lusts after the barista in the neighborhood coffee shop who infuses her latte with just the right amount of milk and sugar. It is for the girl that fell madly in love with her best friend, only to have her heart shattered and friendship ruined. To Her is for the woman afraid to admit her sexual desires because society tells her that it’s not “normal.”
What does it mean to be Black? In this daring poetry collection, Some Kind Of Black challenges Black stereotypes and dissects the connection between skin color and personal trauma. The author questions her culture while detailing her own experiences in the Black community. While exploring her bloodline and current relationships, Amber Moss uncovers the threat of brown skin.
Some Kind Of Black investigates colorism, mass incarceration, identity, and survival. Moss takes the reader through the struggle for inclusivity as she discovers there is no formula to being Black. From adolescence to adulthood, Moss learns to embrace her identity and the community that once evaded her.
