In Praise for Without Home

"I love the book — the sensuousness of the poems, combined with their passionate scrutiny of nature and the poet's connection to it, makes Without Home very powerful. These are painterly poems, and I admire their intensity and their secretiveness."

— Maria Mazziotti Gillan

Therése Halscheid's poems are remarkable for the power of their imagery, exquisite yet fierce.Without Home contains dazzling crafted work whose landscapes move from the Jersey shore to South Africa — landscapes of love and loss, 'parachutes of dandelions'. And Halscheid's poems contain a lyrical intelligence that is haunting."

— Laura Boss

"'I will no longer speak in terms of separateness,' writes Therése Halscheid. From beginning to end, the poems in Without Home speak with the voice of one who has sought and made connections across varied terrain, both physical and spiritual. Halscheid's poems sing with the resonance and detail of each far-flung place, from a remote Australian cattle station to the hospital room where her brain-damaged father sits, cut off from his daughter's love and need.

Keeping a courage reticence, Halscheid calls herself and her reader to 'look hard,' at each stop on a continual journey. 'There is always more than air to be breathing,' she reminds us. In Without Home the breath of each poem becomes both a search and a destination, echoing the deep rhythms of the earth, our one true home."

"Radiant, mysterious poems that flow down the page as easily as water, or skip over the page as if going from stone to stone in search of safe footing."
