vi, 179 pp. 'The Candles of My Life' is the story of Helen Corrigan Iekel, an everyday twentieth century wife and mother who was also a poet. For Helen, writing poetry was life-giving. With a tenacity largely unrewarded, she wrote of the ones she loved and of the world that surrounded her. In those lines, she expressed the beauty of her life experience and often found comfort when her world seemed to collapse. The courage and heart of this wife and mother combine with the soul of a poet in an offering of simplicity that conceals the depth of her emotion and shines with brilliance.
