Sandee Gertz Umbachs THE PATTERN MAKERS DAUGHTER is a remarkable debut collection full of honesty, wisdom, and heart. Like a fine photographer, she has empathy for her subjects, an eye for the telling detail, and a commitment to the truth. She brings this community to life from an insider perspective these are her people, though the love she brings to these poems never slides into sentimentality or idealizing they never lose the necessary grit. In these finely wrought poems, danger and trauma exist in the landscape, in the homes, and in the very bodies of her characters. These are simply the stories we tell each other to stay alive. Jim Daniels
