In this stunning debut collection, Lauren Moseley's poems move through real and imagined landscapes, navigating the borders between doubt, fear, wonder, and empowerment. Through the lens of the natural world, Moseley explores love, family, marriage, and self-knowledge, and never stops searching for the sacred, even when "the thread connecting all things" snaps. At once electric and contemplative, in a lyrical but spare style, the poems in Big Windows ultimately break down the boundaries between the self and the environment, between the physical and dream worlds, revealing the transcendent in the everyday.
