    As I first read the verse in Out of Darkness I sensed a viable poet. After re-reading the verse I felt I knew Isabella Lee. She uses a series of recurrent motifs to set against her account of the life in which she found herself in. These motifs – the tricks of an survival artist; Isabella seemingly has had serious life-issues from a very young age and weathered them all. The recurrent images of individual instances that she survived made me wonder if I could have done the same. Of course this collection is but a starting look into Isabella's life. She has a knack for underplaying the serious issues that are penned. She seemingly disregards life-threatening situation with a, "Oh well, it is what it is and now it's done" attitude. Abuse from a young age, falling into an adulthood of mishaps, more abuse, failing health; nothing stopped her and the moment a wrong was finished; it was finished. An amazing read. I can not wait for the next volume.

    i was honoured Ed asked me to throw in a couple sketches- strong verse. Didn't want to illustrate the book- that would have taken away from the words and to be honest- no way to touch such topics and do them justice...i am a big fan of Isabella Lee's works...

    You can not just look through the writings of Isabella and not be touched and at times feel overwhelmed. She forces you into her darkness but not without hope. She came through and this is a testament to survival. Poetry lovers should have her works in their collection. I compiled this small Isabella 101 collection to give a beginner's idea of what Isabella Lee is. Volumes 2 and 3 promise to be more in depth.
