Description:

Under Ducor Skies is a reflective journey across lost childhood, war, arduous youth, and caged dreams, to a time of soaring peace, where bullets are finally silenced, with an even greater battle left to silence within. In a town that is a shadow of its previous self, and everything around you tells you that you’ll fail, how do you keep the shredded pieces of hope alive? Under Ducor Skies mirrors life in its various forms—love, growth, adventure, everyday happenings, and experiences of people, near and far - known and unknown. You’ll be entertained, inspired, provoked, and pushed to think beyond the layers of what seems ordinary. It is a voyage of dreamers and wanderers, who’ve held onto the tattered threads of their dreams; pushing beyond limitations and challenges, to make something of themselves.

Readers will be given a front-row seat into Ducor, the city of dreams, through the authors’ lens. They’ll enjoy the openness, depth, vulnerability, and ease with which she shares each poem. Together, they’ll open old scars, mend wounds, laugh, cry, heal and rise. The girl power-themed poems are particularly armed with the right ingredients to give any woman, or girl, back her power, and inspire her to elevate to her most authentic and exceptional self. Leave all your worries, fears, and doubts at the door of this book, losing yourself in every page, exploring, rediscovering, and emerging as a wholesome you. It’s time to weave stories we’ve long held close to our hearts; those that inspire, challenge, and keep us thriving, in spite of all the crooked paths we tread Under Ducor Skies.
