I was so excited when this book arrived in the mail
by Kaveri Patel.
I can remember when I first starting reading her blog
about 5 years ago. Her poems always touched my heart in a special way
and even though I have never met her in person
I feel as though I know her and by that I mean
know a big part of her heart and a lot she has experienced
in her young life might have been this one at another time.
Remember many times making the comment to her
"you need to write a book."
She lives in California, a practicing physician and here
could be her mother and lives at the edge of the woods
in Northern Tennessee
at this time of her life.
Often have the thought
that life is so special to bring people like this into our lives.
This is Kaveri's third book
and I smile as I type away at the moment
with thoughts of how proud I am of her....
Her first book "An Invitation" 2011
second, "Under the Waves" 2012
and now "The Voice" 2014

In her first book "The Invitation"
among her acknowledgments
