"I lean into my own loving/touch, for which no wound/is too ugly,' Linda McCarriston says at the end of 'Healing the Mare,' one of the many poems of extraordinary poignancy and power in Eva-Mary. These unflinching poems of violence and violation and loss earn her the right to such a claim. It's a survivor's claim and these are the poems of a survivor, as scrupulous in their language and art as they are in their quest to register honestly the familial unspoken, a life inside a life." --Stephen Dunn
