by Jennifer Adams Esdaile
A delightful book of poetry, Jennifer Adams Esdaile’s A Basket of Poesies is a book for all seasons (Christmas, Easter, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day). It takes biblical passages and skillfully uses rhythm and rhyme to make these passages come alive. Coupled with her husband’s artwork, Ms. Esdaile uses various forms of poetry to discuss a number of Christian beliefs and tenets.
Touching on titles such as “Allegories of Christ” and “Mary’s Dilemma” Ms. Esdaile interprets the biblical verses, adding insight and inspiration to them all.
