5-Time Connecticut Author Publishes Debut Poetry Book Exploring Themes of Love, Grief and Depression in the Wake of COVID-19’s Extended Isolation

The grip of COVID-fear stripped away the human necessity to gather and find succor in times of sickness or loss. The damage from that extended, albeit necessary, isolation left a wound in our hearts that time did not soon heal. Instead, so many were left floundering and have forgotten how to connect with one another. This is where author Heather D. Nelson aimed her book, “Grappling to Light.”

“Let us embrace the white-hot truth of loss. Mine laid bare for you to read, and maybe yours too finally exposed to the light of day for healing to find. Lean in.”
– HDNelson
