Hidden in Childhood #1 Best Selling Poetry Anthology on Amazon!

Poet Gabriela Marie Milton has done it again! Her latest anthology, Hidden in Childhood, has reached #1 status on Amazon. This 450-page collection of poetic voices reveals a vast range of experiences and emotions about childhood. As Milton wrote to the authors, it is “filled with the light and the shadows of your childhoods; 450 pages filled with tears and smiles. It’s an incredible book.” Indeed, at our Zoom launch party, many authors cried while reading their poetry. 

Milton writes, ” From authors featured on NPR, BBC, and the New York Times, and from emerging poets, comes a monumental anthology in which every poem sends shivers down your spine. Childhood’s joy and trauma expressed – with stunning talent and sincerity – by over 150 poets in more than 280 poems. Childhood spaces magnified by the human memory, populated by good and bad, by trips to hell and heaven, in an almost Hieronymus Bosch type of atmosphere.  Over 150 voices call you to read this book. Read it. You will learn that childhood never goes away. You will be reminded of the beauty of the seraphim and the need to protect children from any form of abuse. 150 voices knock on your door. Open the door. A chorus of childhoods will tell you that our children need love.”

You can read the preface to the book here.

You may order the book in either Kindle or paperback formats.

    What a lovely thing to write about today. My husband is tracking copies and just sent my friend in Seattle a picture of her copy sitting on her porch outside. Mine got in late last night. I don’t think Amazon knew how quickly this book would fly off the shelf, but I am not surprised at all. When you give this book to anyone you know that has had difficulties growing up, it is a way to tell that person you love them, and you want them to know anything that your parents did, was never in any way your fault. Thank you Barbara for this lovely tribute to Literary Revelations on a number one best selling book – «Hidden In Childhood.» Barbara I listened to the radio show and even just listening was so emotional. Big blessings!

        You are so welcome Barbara. As I was reading your comment I realized that this is like an amazing project that included so many great poets, writers, and artist in the community. So it feels like a family almost to me, those of us who had it hard growing up and look where we are. We have taken that hardship and «woven it into a shield of great pride.» Gabriela did something very special here. I can’t wait to see your selfie. Blessings Barbara, big hugs, Joni
