    1 thought on “The Warrior: A Mother's Story of a Son at War”

    1. The Warrior is an extraordinary testimonial of a mother grappling with the reality of her son going to war. Written in poetic verse, this intense and unforgettable memoir by Frances Richey is the type of book that grips you and insists that you finish it in a single sitting. Richey uses vivid images to explore her feelings of love, pain, and uncertainty for her son as he heads off to Iraq. Her raw emotion and honesty pierce deeply into your heart. The book forces you into a silence where you fee [...]

    2. Touching and vivid. Some of the images from this author's poetry will be with me for a while - this is part of what's behind all those blue stars in windows, the impact of war on the people back at home who love the warriors and fear for them. Enlightening for me; during my 20 years in the Marine Corps I rarely thought about this aspect of my service.

    3. As one who has been an anti-war activist since the '60s, I've often wrestled with the conflict that has arisen over the fact that my uncles, brothers, and husband served in the military. In this book of poems, Frances Richey deals with that conflict when she, an anti-war activist, sees her son graduate from West Point and go off to Iraq. The materials of her poetry include the trappings of a modern-day warrior, body armor, weapons, and helmets, as well as the warrior attitude that no matter how [...]

    4. The Warrior: A Mother's Story of a Son at War, is Frances Richey's stunning, urgent, and heart-wrenching memoir, written in verse, about a mother who sees her son, a Green Beret and captain in the Army, go off for two tours of duty in Iraq. The Warrior centers around a mother's love for her son, a son from whom she feels distant both literally and metaphorically, for she is a liberal who is against the war, but who realizes that she needs to accept and support the choice her son has made, and to [...]

    5. A short book of poignant poems written by mother who's son has gone to war. I found this book to be very unique and heartfelt. While I'm not anti-war myself, and while my mother took a very God-centered approach to my brother joining the military, it was still touchingly beautiful to read of a mother's heartache. Isn't this the great beauty to books? Sharing in the experiences of others which are unlike our own?

    6. A satisfying little book, as well as a refreshing breath of new poetry, yet I feel like the author could have spent more time on the narrative of her son at war. The collection seemed somewaht random. But the line in the poem about the rock dust in the Garden of the Gods was perfect. "Is this all the Gods are made of" Great stuff.

    7. A collection of poetry written by the mother of an Iraq soldier and how she copes in his absence. Examines the conflict between duty and sacrifice by one who is asked to make the ultimate sacrifice, her son. Brings to light interesting themes, though none of the poems are particularly memorable individually.

    8. Poems by a mother whose son has gone to war. Some very powerful, some not as much. Worth reading for those who are not at war or don't have loved ones at war.

    9. Fantastic poetry about a dear, dear friend of mine! A mother's love, a mother's fear is just beautiful cover to cover!

    10. Touching poems by a mother who had to send her son to fight in Iraq. I hope I never have to face the feelings she so beautifully expresses with her fears for her son.
