Birthed from Scorched Hearts: Women Respond to War

Award-winning author MariJo Moore asked women from around the world to consider the devastating nature of conflict—inner wars, outer wars, public battles, and personal losses. Their answers, in the form of poignant poetry and essays, examine war in all its permutations, beginning in 60 CE and continuing into the 21st century, from Ireland to Iraq and everywhere in between - a Blitz evacuee, an ex-slave, an incarcerated mother, former military personnel, survivors of domestic violence, those who have battled drugs and disease, and many other courageous women willing to share their unique and timeless insight on the realities of war.



With contributions from Linda Hogan, Paula Gunn Allen, Lee Maracle, Kim Shuck, Laura ToheTerra Trevor, Linda Boyden, and numerous others, this moving anthology encompasses a wide range of voices,
