This new collection by SIBA nominee and GAYA winner Dana Wildsmith brings the reader back once more to Wildsmith's family farm in Bethlehem, Georgia, a farm introduced through Wildsmith's earlier poetry collection, One Good Hand, and her environmental memoir, Back to Abnormal. There is a poem for each day of advent in this book, beginning with poems set in the biblical Bethlehem, and then moving in time and place to Wildsmith's Christmases in Bethlehem, Georgia. The book is appropriately rounded out by the musical score based on one of the poems in the book.
