About the Book

There’s something about poetry that calls to the deepest part of the human soul. Thoughts such as wondering where God came from, developing a good self-image, struggling with family relationships, overcoming life’s experiences, nurturing spiritual health, caring about cultural issues, and more are subjects with which the reader will connect. Rhyme and Reason is the collection of seventy of Elaine’s poetry written since 1978 and offered here for your enjoyment. She has also included some of her short stories near the end of the book that make for interesting reading, including a biblical fiction piece about Joseph and Mary, as well as a true story of a miraculous healing, and a piece of fiction titled “House of Cards.” Curl up with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, and savor the experience.
