Author Kathleen Dunleavy’s highly rated book “Mom’s Poetry,” a lovely collection of poems about her journey as she traveled along the path of life, is now available in leading digital stores globally.
“Mom’s Poetry” takes readers on a journey where they get to see how Kathleen, a mother herself, went through episodes of her life – her relationships with people as well as significant events throughout her life. Kathleen is a mother of four, grandmother of eleven, and a great grandmother to two amazing little ones.
The collection, which involves some solemn and spiritual works, has a verse written about each family member. “Mom’s Poetry” also features several Thanksgiving prayer-poems, an impassioned 9-11 write-up from a hands-on point of view, and some deaths in the family.
Kathleen says she was working at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital when the Towers were damaged and engulfed in flame. Her staff hurriedly prepared the Intensive Care Unit to receive the victims.
In a review on Amazon, a reader described “Mom’s Poetry” as beautiful, catchy, and full of life’s experiences.
“Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Is music to God’s ears.” It is so full of meaning for Catholics especially. I just loved it! Another favorite is Best Friends and the two dogs – So true – Unconditional love of a dog. Loved the paintings and their explanations. Let’s have more,” the reader wrote.
On the other hand, M.M. Agnes, another reader, writes: “Touching, from the heart. A beautiful woman is sharing her thoughts, feelings, and love for her family. Funny, too.” “Mom’s Poetry” currently has a 5/5 global rating on Amazon, with readers commending Kathleen Dunleavy for coming up with a touching novel.
Apart from being an accomplished pianist and organist, Kathleen has primary interests in her family, children, gardening, writing, walking, spirituality, benevolence, and music.
