Inside the Book

Title: GHOSTS OF OLD VIRGINNY
Author: Milla van der Have
Publisher: Aldrich Press (imprint of Kelsay Books)
Pages: 42
Genre: Poetry
BOOK BLURB:
Virginia city, Nevada has been drawing the adventurous for over 100 years. It has been the home of gold-miners, businessmen and writers. After the bonanza, Virginia City reinvented herself and became a ghost town that draws travelers and artists. And, as it happened, a Dutch poet.
Milla van der Have visited Virginia City in 2014, on a writer’s residency to finish her novel. But once there, something happened: the Comstock got to her. In Ghosts of Old Virginny Van der Have explores the legends and history of the Comstock by reimagining them. These poems deal with being uprooted and leaving the known behind. They speak of miners, ghosts and horses and throughout of the comfortable tension of love, that greatest journey of all.
You can purchase your copy of Ghosts of Old Virginny at Amazon.

MY THOUGHTS
I loved this book of poems.   The descriptions were so vivid that you could picture the scenes .  Everybody needs a get away after a hard stressful day and I found this book to be good for that get away.  You can go back in time to places that you can relax in, feel peace in and want to stay there.  We all remember the towns through real life or reading, that were great towns and through the years, people moved on and the towns became filled with ghosts instead of people, thus, the term ghost town.  This still occurs, but it was so prevalent in the ole west and pioneer days.  The poetry is such that you lose yourself in it.  You feel as though you are on the streets of Old Virginny, in the buildings and in nature.   The poems aren't all fluff and icing. There is some heartache from losses that happened.   The poetry is beautiful, even the visions of the dusty pioneer days.  It sends you to another place, another time and there is also a place in it for the here and now.  So if you want to relax, remember,  close your eyes and picture beauty, then all you have to do is look at the old barn on the cover of the book.  You will, Remember When?
So take a journey into the past and the present and relax.
You won't want to put the book down and you definitely won't want to leave.

I received a copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book  5 STARS.
