What others are saying about Her Strange Angels...
Life is so much of the time a journey, as Sarah La Rosa puts it, "among the wreckage /of grand plans gone awry." And still, there is beauty, truth, faith and all the other angels that carry us. In Her Strange Angels, La Rosa points clearly to her encounters with the divine with
honesty and heart-opening questions. It is good to travel with her for awhile.

Sarah La Rosa writes of the silence of descent, of thresholds and black water and wildness and bones. She writes in the voice of a woman who has known anguish and heartbreak, and has yet returned, baring her scars, to experience joy.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve read one of her poems each morning to start my day. Before the first glimmers of dawn, with steaming coffee in hand and candles lit, I savor her imagery and wordsmithing. She takes me down to a soul-place I recognize, where I encounter twisted roots and open wings, and my own heart’s reflection.
“We are a ragtag tribe of outcasts
moon howling, spiritual homesteaders."

Her Strange Angels offers a resting place for the wandering soul in search of truth. Sarah creates a magical world of nature and spirit where our humanity can be witnessed and held. Filled with profound wisdom, her poems are a personal look into dark, abandoned corners, and carry the medicine to heal our wounds. Each poem brings us into closer contact with the sacred, blessing our vulnerabilities and giving us courage and strength as we find our way home.

If somehow you find yourself with this book in your hands and your first judgmental thought is that it has no connection to you, bears no resemblance to your life, and that it's meant for "other people" just take a deep breath lady, close your eyes and turn to any page.
You'll find yourself there.

Her Strange Angels is a book I would give as an offering of grace, love and empowerment to everyone I know. Each poem takes you a step further, weaving an incredible story about a woman's spiritual and emotional journey. You will feel heard and seen by Sarah in a new way. She will reveal ancient wisdom you have known deep inside your bones to be true, but could never articulate. The dreamy imagery is otherworldly, and yet the writing is grounded and powerful. Don't be afraid. Read on. It's a feast for the soul.

I read some of your book to my two daughters. Now, one has been trying to make up poems/ words of wisdom. She calls them "my life". She cannot spell or read completely yet. She makes them up. It is amazing. You are an influence on her. I love it.Thank you Sarah!
