“Dreaming in Darkness, by Jessica Kristie, is a poignant, and deeply moving journey about love and loss. Many will find solace in Jess Kristie’s ability to take that which lives deep inside the heart and soul, and translate those feelings and emotions into gorgeous poetry and prose. Love unrequited…promises made and broken…despair and heartache—these are the things we, as humans, eventually feel when we open our hearts to others. Never have I seen raw emotion represented so eloquently, as love lays it’s staggering, oft-times, painful tune. Both powerful and captivating, Jessica Kristie delivers a body of work you will not soon forget.” ~ Al Boudreau, Author of In Memory of Greed
“What touched me the most about “Dreaming in Darkness” was the undefined definition of its themes. Love and lovers dance through each page, but it’s love that can cross many boundaries: Mother to child (I was touched by Jessica’s dedication to her children in “We Walk on Water”), man to woman, friend to friend. The dreams and yes, the nightmares we find in “Dreaming in Darkness” touch the darkest corners of our hearts, our hidden fears and our greatest loves across all areas of our lives. ” ~ Renee Malove, Owner of Clever Copywriting.
