Words I've Loved By, a new book by Michelle T. Stucky, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

A collection of more than four dozen poems, Words I've Loved By explores a spectrum of emotions. The author animates the joy of romance, hope, humor, and redemption. She navigates the complexity of betrayal, faith, devotion, and empathy. She illustrates the angst of regret, anxiety, loss, and despair. Inspired by lyricists Jewel Kilcher and Billy Joel, this first-time author intimately elaborates on the sentiments that we all share. She uniquely lends words to the otherwise indescribable bonds that connect us to our humanity.
