The Poetry of Love

kayeA Winged Thing and Holy by Mary Gray Kaye, a local Chicago author, is a lyrical novel about an unmarried 37-year-old female poet who resides in Chicago.  Not only does Genevieve love writing poetry, she also loves the older man she met at a local writing group.  There is just one problem, one big problem – he’s married. As a poet, his inspirational well has run dry.  Genevieve is so wrapped-up in his arms and the poetic inspiration she receives from loving him, that she does not see the forest for the trees.

I had a tough time getting into this book, but the further I read, the more entangled I became!  Kaye’s writing is poetic and her style is unique. The emotions and story line rang a deep, resounding bell in me.  I thoroughly enjoyed the many carefully chosen quotes by famous writers at the beginning of each chapter.  Additionally, I loved the many references to familiar Chicago locales.  No matter where you live, this is a novel I think you will enjoy.
