Morning In The Long Night

BOOK REVIEW by David Roy

This lovely work by Peggy Aylsworth Levine reminded me of a line from The Duino Elegies. "For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror, that we are still able to bear, and we revere it so, because it calmly disdains to destroy us." The writer evokes through Rachel's eyes, as well as those of her close friends, the often terrifying but beautiful uncertainty we all face, wandering through the restless, conscious-stirring hours before our own private dawns, longing for that break of clarity, yet fearing what pain and revelations await.
