A Poetically Explosive Story

Book Review for “My Counterfeit Self” by Jane Davis

Lucy Forrester is a poet. That means by definition that she uses her words to express all the emotions she’s feeling, be they personal or be they political. In fact, she’s something of a rebel, but one with a cause she’s not willing to give up; the threat of the nuclear armament policies, in her own country of England as well as across the globe. The problem with Lucy is that if she’s going to use her poems to get her message across, she needs an audience, and one that is as wide as possible. However, Lucy isn’t one for fame, in fact, she’d rather be shamed than honored for her works. This dilemma is one she’s struggled with her whole life, and now that she’s getting older, she wonders if what she’s been showing the public is who she really is, or instead is a persona that she’s carved out to promote her cause.

To read the full review of this book, it is now available only on my new blog here.

Rossdale Print Productions released “My Counterfeit Self” by Jane Davis on October 1, 2016. This book is available (affiliate links) from Amazon (still on sale!), as well as new or used from Alibris.

Oh, and how about the amazing artwork on this cover, right? Jane has the BEST book covers! Thankfully, what we get inside is equally as beautiful.
