Rejoice Publications to release Mary Lee Poetry Collection ‘Bloom’

posted by Anthony on November 15, 2016

This book is a kind of sanctuary – not from the world but more deeply into it…”

– Daniel Bowman Jr. (author)

“Mary Lee shows herself to also be a poet willing to audaciously experiment where few have gone before.”

– Kevin Higgins (author)



Bloom is a book of spiritual poetry inspired by the ever-changing world around us. Written by Irish poet Mary Lee, this collection of poems is inspiring, empowering and beautifully evocative. In times of change, Bloom can be a constant.

Split into three distinct sections – Lighthouse, Kinship with The Invisible and Sanctuary – Bloom brings together the author’s Christian faith with contemporary poetry. Life, loss and the beauty of the world become conduits for higher thought, delivered through bright and engaging verse that will connect deeply with anyone who reads it.
