Schiller presents her love story to the three islands of the former Dutch West Indies in this collection of verse and art. The poetry is unintimidating and very well supported by the watercolor art of Skaidra Zayas. Ships and slavery, sugar and starlit skies pepper this collection of history and natural beauty. The poems range from simple odes to native creatures to the deeper and more complex “Galileo’s Moons.” For the reader unfamiliar with the islands, Schiller presents a brief history as well as a brief autobiography. It’s rare to find a themed collection of poetry that flows this smoothly and naturally without the hint of stiffness or forced wording.
