Poetry for the Newly Single 40 Something, by Maria Stephenson
Published by Stairwell Books of York, this poetry collection is split into three parts, beginning in darkness and journeying into the light.
In part one, the collection explores being trapped inside an unhappy marriage. Part two follows 'the escape' and part three celebrates freedom which includes online dating experiences.
The poetry aims to find its place in the heart of the many who can identify with both being trapped and starting again. It also aims to bring comfort and strength to others in the same situation.
