Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on May 30, 2012 :
This is such a fun mix of pottery and story put together as only Lori Lopez can. In this story you find a beautiful young girl who has been hurt so badly in the past that as her life gets more lonely her mind starts to break. You cannot help but feel the pain in this girl's heart as you follow her down the path of insanity.

Review by: Parents' Little Black Book Reviews on May 28, 2012 :
Written in both poetry and prose author Lori R. Lopez has given us the short tale of a woman who has fallen into the depth of despair.

Haunting and emotive we follow the protagonist as she chases and is chased by a mysterious male figure. But he is real or the product of her imagination as she lives her surreal existence in the romance of her poetry counterpoint to her mundane job and social life.

Very well done this one will leave you guessing right up to the very end. Or maybe beyond the end?
