9780739436967: The Poems and Prayers of Helen Steiner Rice

This beautifully crafted edition offers the first, largest, and most complete collection ever of Helen Steiner Rice poems.

From her remarkable body of work, this volume includes nearly four hundred original poems--sixteen of them rare and previously uncollected--and one never-before-published prayer discovered in the Helen Steiner Rice Foundation archives. Included are favorites like "The Praying Hands," "Heart Gifts," and "Tribute to John F. Kennedy."

Organized topically into sixteen parts, this collection features the subjects Helen returned to again and again in her life--from musings on heaven and the beauty in nature to odes of love for friends and family. It's a definitive volume packed with heart and hope for generations to come.

BACK FLAP

From the 1920s and beyond her death in 1981, Helen Steiner Rice has been an unofficial poet laureate of hope and optimism. Her books have sold more than seven million copies. There's probably not one American family today that hasn't been touched by some form of Helen's work. Even today her writings continue to inspire a new generation online, in gift books, and through note cards.

Virginia J. Ruehlmann of Cincinnati, Ohio, continues the legacy of her friend through the Helen Steiner Rice Foundation. Virginia has compiled more than fifty volumes of Helen's inspirational verse and poetry, including Awake My Soul and Sing: Poems Inspired by Favorite Hymns.

From the Back Cover:
