Incarnate Grace

In her collection Incarnate Grace, Moira Linehan explores, questions and ultimately celebrates her attempt to live in the temple of the present after learning she has breast cancer.

If No Moon

The collection “contains profound meditations on loss, on the rituals of mourning the beloved, and on the poet’s difficult pilgrimage from ‘grief’s labyrinth’ to an eventual willingness to embrace life again.”
–Maurya Simon
