“The poems in A Tangled Path to Heaven are direct, loving, and wise elegies that tell a universal tale of our world, a life, and a family. These poems explore the imprecision of love, its center and transparency. Through Julia Klatt Singer’s desire for connection, she effects a profound and mysterious spell that binds the reader to the depths and delights of human splendor.” – Patricia Cumbie, author of Where People Like Us Live
