What one reviewer says:
“If I had to choose one word for [Kathryn’s] poetry, I’d say ‘sensuality.’… A Breeze You Whisper entwines, with simplicity and smoothness, two major themes at the core of poetry: nature and love” (“Whispers and Flames,” In A Fragile Moment: A Landscape of Canadian Poetry by Miguel Angel Olivé Iglesias, HBP, 2019)
