The colloquial immediacy of these poems in free verse convey the stark anguish of the poet’s soul and earthy yearnings as she encounters pre-marital tensions, made all the more poignant by her overriding love of God, her constant companion and provider.


This collection of frank and sincere Christian poems might be described as a spiritual Bridget Jones diary! The poet expresses her intimate conflicts and concerns as she anticipates the eventual consummation of her marriage. Perhaps one of the main values of the collection is that it conveys a message for many young Christians (and older ones too—not just those preparing for marriage!) that the conflicts they experience are absolutely normal—and can be resolved and sanctified in so far as our dwelling place is not an earthly place but the Lord who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. The poet expresses a roller-coaster of emotions as she comes to terms with the age-old conflict of the flesh versus the spirit, the urges of the flesh versus the disciplined life of the Christian, especially as she deals with the anguish where the object of her love is often aloof and inconstant.
