The poems in this powerful new collection explore the history of conflict and resilience--whether it occurs during the Nazi occupation of Poland, the Balkan wars in Bosnia and Croatia, or within the intimate tableaux of a family's dissonance. Weaving poems into three distinct sections, Linda Nemec Foster pays close attention to not only what divides us, but also to what can heal and redeem our common journey: an artist's notebook; the imagined life of Mary Magdalene; a fascination with Mount Fuji; a mother's obsession with vintage movie stars; a dead father's love. The Blue Divide resonates with the landscape of the world and the landscape of the heart.
