An autobiographical collection of forty thoughtful and introspective poems, Moments in Life by Claudine is a very moving account of Claudine's life experiences as expressed in verse. In keeping with the ebb and flow of patterns in life itself, Claudine's poetry encompasses a range of emotions. Sharing her pain with the reader, subjects in Claudine's poetry include the sorrow of abandonment, abuse, divorce and death. Especially sympathetic to the heartbreak of an abusive relationship, the poet openly expresses the helplessness of being a victim and the courage and triumph of freeing oneself. She also writes about the joy of sisterhood, a beloved pet, and the lighthearted musings of the pitter-patter of little feet. Filled with realism and clarity, the poet provides an easy to read collection that contains something enjoyable to which almost any reader can relate. These very candid and intimate glimpses at the special "moments" in Claudine's life are heartfelt words that will bring joy and comfort to all readers.
