Staff Reviews


In this small book of poems, Nelson paints her life in the color blue and brings readers along on her journey of discovering love, loss, and grief. Through witty prose and heartfelt poetry, we travel through Nelson's life and how she marks her life and the tragic events relayed to us with the color blue. It is personified as the author's most trusted and constant companion and in reading Bluets, it becomes a guiding hand for readers as well.
