How can we build meaningful lives within limits beyond our control? Spellbook for the Sabbath Queen explores this question across several themes: intimate relationships, religious belief, and our own longings for home. The Gulf Coast and East Texas landscapes provide a vivid backdrop for navigating a world in which the speaker of these poems seeks authentic connection, while Jewish mysticism provides a tradition that grounds her own grief in a community long acquainted with exile and isolation. Part psalter, part Sapphic verse, this debut collection evokes the spirit of Emily Dickinson while calling the reader to prayer for a life fully lived.
