I looked up the book, Borrowed Names, to read a bit more about it-looks quite wonderful. What a great idea to turn parts of those lives into poetry. There is a lesson on about mothers and daughters, an intriguing subject!

BORROWED NAMES is an outstanding book. I loved it!!! The author, Jeannine Atkins, was the featured speaker at our reading council's winter dinner meeting in March. Jeannine did a wonderful presentation.
