I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
**** I give Ambrosia: A Poetry Anthology 4 stars. It’s hard to give a rating to an anthology because inevitably I find myself liking some of the works and not being crazy about others. So, how do you choose which way the scale falls? I also find that I’m pretty particular about poetry so even within one poet’s work, I’ll love one poem and find myself yawning through another. Rating this one was difficult.
What really pushed this one up into the four-star range is the pledge to donate royalties to a cause that is important to me: The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I think it is amazing that all these artists – the poets, cover designer, editor, etc. – donated their time and talents to a meaningful cause. I thank them.

If you’re interested in supporting a good cause and looking to find some new poets/authors to add to your reading list, give this one a look!
