Silk Purses and Lemonade emerges from a comment that Robin “start seeing the glass as half full.” Turbulent months watching her brother fight and succumb to acute myeloid leukemia makes this difficult. A world callous to the challenges faced by refugees, a sensitive ecosystem, true democracy and human rights, teases at her ability to find hope. And yet, she does, in poems that mark a journey through a tangle of grief, loss, and witness. Here she offers a steadfast belief in human will, the integrity to shed pasts and persevere through that jungle.
