_Trusting Ice_ a wide ranging collection of lyric poems featuring luminous presentations of the natural world in the author's native Massachusetts and imbued with a sense of Irish culture and history. "The sun is shining like it means it," writes O'Brien, and in this collection, a reader has no doubt she means it. A stunning gathering by a writer at the height of her powers.

About the Author:

Peggy O'Brien grew up in western Massachusetts and went to Mount Holyoke College. She did her graduate work in Ireland and then taught at Trinity College, Dublin, for the first half of her career. She has spent the second half at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She has published two, previous collections of poetry, _Sudden Thaw,_ an Orchises book, and _Frog Spotting._ She is the author of _Writing Lough Derg: from Carleton to Heaney,_ a critical study of literature about an ancient pilgrimage in Ireland.

Review:

Peggy O Brien's imagination is both sumptuous and skeptical. For every lustrous description there is a pang as it disappoints or dissipates. The poems in her third collection, Trusting Ice, are smart and sympathetic, rich and surprising. You read them and the skies clear. --J. D. McClatchy
