Go Back

To Cross for a Daughter and other poems

Elizabeth L. A. Kamara

With her latest collection of poems, Kamara has created a world of nostalgia, nature, hope, pain, triumph and demonstrated that she is a champion of women.  Her poems have been carefully chosen to pique the interest of the reader on a whirlwind journey of lasting Memories to the coming of the painful civil war in Bomaru, The First Shot, and the hope-inspiring and anthemic Create A New Sierra. The collection comes across as forerunner to many more poetry collections from Kamara who combines her roles as a feminist, mother, daughter, sister, teacher, activist, mentor, motivator and writer.
