From the publisher

“A love letter to the author’s Bermudian heritage, this collection celebrates coming home, especially at Christmas. Bermuda is the gift and Miller has wrapped it up beautifully.”
– Tina Stevenson, The Bermudian

In Queen Palm, internationally-published poet Nancy Anne Miller takes readers on a captivating journey into the rich iconography and metaphors of the Christmas season. Through four distinct sections, Miller explores the unique blend of African/English influences found in Bermudian customs, the vibrant and sometimes extravagant American celebrations, the symbolism of Advent, and the poet’s personal creative process. The book concludes with a thought-provoking selection of Biblically-inspired poems.

While delving into the exploration of language and imagery, the poems also carry a spiritual undertone, inviting readers to embark on both a poetic inquiry and a sacred quest. Queen Palm celebrates the power of Christmas as a transformative and introspective time, where the boundaries of poetry and spirituality merge seamlessly.
