Jane Algozzini's poetry has won awards in the United States and has been printed internationally. The poems in this book were selected from a collection which was written over a 20 year span and includes the different formats she used as she developed and expanded her writing style. Much of her poetry expresses feelings that most people find easy to relate to even though they are expressed symbolically. The title of the book "Beneath the Snow" is also the name of the first poem in the book and expresses the way many of us put on a happy face for others while hiding the pain we feel inside. Her poetry has the ability to touch, not only the tender parts of out inner selves, but also the hope that drives us on and keeps us believing in a better future. I believe that this will be a book that you will keep and read many times over and you will find that the pages will wear out long before you tire of the content.
