Amazon Free Ebook: Shadow Puppets By Local Author Adria Amos


Today,, is offering local writer Adria Amos’ book Shadow Puppets for free!  I love that there is one titled Replaced at Dollywood. 🙂

In this book of free verse poems, one speaker examines her roles as daughter, mother, wife, and granddaughter. She explores both *her* effect on members of her family and *their* effect on her, good and bad, in an attempt to discover universal experiences of contemporary families.

Mothers of older children will recognize the bittersweet experience of being left behind in “Growing Pains” and “Replaced at Dollywood.” Lovers will identify with the speaker’s desire to hide her faults early in a relationship. Daughters will remember their own battles between claiming their own identity and embracing their roots in “Her Garden” and “Homesick for Indiana.” The title poem informs the structure of the book.
