Reviews for Looking for the Light:
“Wow!! Looking for the Light dived into my soul. Ashleigh’s words are so beautifully powerful. From someone who spent 7-years battling with infertility and loss, this book completely and eloquently captures how this feels – on one hand there is grief so deep it consumes you, but at the same time there is growth and hope for brighter days. One can’t exist without the other. I feel like this book has given permission for both. This collection gives those who have been touched by infertility and loss a voice, and comfort that they are not alone.”
– Jennifer Robertson, Author and Fertility Coach
“A beautifully written book portraying the darkness of grief followed by the light ahead. Once I started reading I couldn’t stop. The poems felt like words taken out of my own heart. The whole book really resonated with me and I couldn’t recommend this book enough!”
