Conversations with the Heart and Soul
Lacey Odoms author of Conversations with the Heart and Soul is consistently using her poetry as a tool to help her readers and herself work toward a heightened social and spiritual awareness and a deeper understanding of life—the choices we make, the things we say, the actions we take, the things we leave unsaid and undone and how the human experience is interconnected.
Much of Lacey's writing is heavily influenced by New Orleans culture, issues experienced by individuals around the world, and her faith in Jesus Christ.
This book is divided into four chapters with each chapter dealing with a different truth to uncover love, healing and restoration. This is a must read for those who desire to gain an insight on the experiences of being black and to discover those common life themes that make us human.
Conversations with the Heart and Soul is a powerful debut in poetry. Lacey Odoms delivers a collection that inspires and stirs us. The poems are uniquely from a young black woman's perspective - her trials, her hopes, and her desire for a better world. This poetry makes us think, but it also makes us smile and feel thankful to Odoms for being so courageous with her words. As the title suggests, Odoms writes from somewhere deep inside her "heart and soul." Keep an eye out for future collections; this poet has a voice that needs to be heard. - Juyanne James, author of The Persimmon Trail and Other Stories
