“Beyond the Threshold” – Poems by Francina Hartstra

My dear friend Francina Hartstra is a Dutch poet now living in the city of Delft who has also lived in the United States for several years.
In 2004 her first poetry book “The Song of the River” was published by Helionaut Publication in the USA.

Francina’s lovely second poetry book, also in the English language, contains 39 poems. The collection emerged from the thought that every person makes choices or needs to make choices in life without really knowing the consequences. The poems are written independently but arranged in such manner that this thought became a red thread throughout the book.

The book is very beautifully printed and is published by Francina herself. A wonderful treasure of thoughts about loss, life and loneliness, and of course about love.

ISBN 978-90-821238-0-7
