Book Review of
Dreams of Grandeur
Dreams of Grandeur is a brief anthology of poetry written by Canadian
author Amber A. Whitman. Most of the poems are short and to the point, not obtuse as some poetry tends to be. Writing poetry
is clearly one way the author confronts her own inner demons, as most of the poems in this book seem to deal with heavier
topics such as grief, loss, and broken or breaking relationships.
