HOME BY ANOTHER ROAD
Home By Another Road asks all the big questions: Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going? What is home? Cathy Warner uses every map she has available to answer while navigating the complicated territory of family, faith, forgiveness, regret, and redemption, and we are fortunate to have an honest narrator at the wheel.
–Carey Taylor, author of The Lure of Impermanence
The range of Cathy Warner's poems in Home by Another Road is remarkable. She is equally at home in life's darkest challenges as in life's delights—and creates her own delights in poems that can be pensive or playful, exploratory or exuberant. As the book's title suggests, many of the poems engage particular journeys, while the book's sections lead us through a road trip of ever-changing experiences. You'll find this collection an enriching traveling companion.
–Peggy Rosenthal, author of Praying Through Poetry: Hope for Violent Times
Take a walk with Cathy Warner as she maps out the contours of a life of faith, which is ultimately a life of deep relationship. From mountain-top moments of clarity and connection, to valleys of doubt and pain, these poems chart a course through the difficult terrain of personal transformation, using language and sound generous enough to welcome even the novice traveler. Home by Another Road is a bracingly honest record of healing, and finally of hope, from a trustworthy poet and guide.
–Melissa Reeser Poulin, author of Rupture, Light
Cathy Warner is an observant, trustworthy traveling companion, inviting the reader on a poetic journey of discovery, encountering recognizable landmarks along the rutted roads and switchbacks of memory. Through fitful dreams and sleepless nights, the poems press on into the woods and the reader emerges, not unscathed, but headed home. By any other route, we'd miss so much.
–Constance Mears, author of The Bumbling Mystic’s Obituary
