CASTLES is a debut collection of short poetry and prose. Scribblings of one girl’s pensive crossing from self-centric living into sanctification, it chronicles the intricacies of a ruminator’s mind over the disillusionment of young adulthood. The hauntings of a teenager, then a collegian, these verses comprise the aftereffects of forfeiting one’s purpose to a broken world, before finding the way to heal by grace through faith.
Separated into three ambiguous, yet starkly revealing sections, Dungeon, Tower, and Throne Room, it takes you on an imperfect and emotion-driven walk of discovery—that of self, that of forgiveness, and most importantly, that of God. Amidst the widening pitfalls of today’s culture of apathy, the author dedicates it to the willful and tenderhearted, honoring anyone who has ever been told they are "too much."
