A thought-provoking collaboration of free verse poems about lesbian love, intimacy, and relationship issues, The Wallflower That Bloomed inspires and encourages those who have dealt with heartache to move forward with courage.

From poems about lesbian breakups to those discussing issues related to women of color, this collection sheds light on real world issues from the perspective of a young Black woman who portrays what it's like growing up in a society where stereo-types and prejudice against women, minorities, and homosexuals are a reality.

The Wallflower That Bloomed also strives to create a sense of community and unity among people who have experienced heartbreak or discrimination, showing them they aren't alone in their struggles. And, through the author's own transformation from a victim of pain to a courageous young woman, it demonstrates that no matter how rough the going gets, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

About the Author

A twenty four year old Black woman born and raised in Queens, New York, Catherine Berquin realized at an early age that life's struggles are real. She was privy to many challenges, experiencing them firsthand not only as a minority but also as a homosexual. Through her poetry, she inspires strength and hope in others who may be struggling through similar difficulties in life, and she is a voice of truth to those who may be oblivious to what it's like to be a young woman of color in today's society.
