"Several of these poems touched me. I am a big Mary Oliver fan and have several of her books on my shelf and maybe a half dozen by other poets and Marisa Donnelly's book is going on that shelf of keepers, on poetry books that I re-read and refer to...that inspire me to make a piece of art or share with a friend.” —Kathy Duffy

"Somewhere on a Highway made me feel lost, and at the same time, made it seem like I found myself. Some poems touched me. Reading several parts brought tears in my eyes because oh my god, it was amazing.” — Imogene Dacanay
