Coming Soon From Finishing Line Press: The Alphabet of Romance

     "The Alphabet of Romance is a delicious journey, strikingly fresh and evocative. I found myself falling into and between the words, drawn into the unfolding story. Trina has a distinctive voice, one to savor slowly, perhaps by a warm fire."  – Keren Taylor, Executive Director, WriteGirl

     "In these lyrical letters the poet joins the timeless progression of those who magnify love in language."  – Alice Templeton

A series of love poems in the tradition of the Song of Songs, The Alphabet of Romance celebrates the long distance courtship of an unlikely couple. She grew up traveling the world as a military dependent. He didn’t leave Chicago until he was in his forties. She tries to keep adding to the catalogue of flowering plants she recognizes. He calls each of them “flower.” They met at a government records management meeting, and knew each other for years before she gathered the courage to ask him out–- to a poetry reading.
