In his authorial debut, writer and poet Caleb Quinn gives readers a look inside his mind and heart as he wrestles with the effects of religious trauma on his life and what the words faith, Love, and God mean to him now outside of the Christian religion. The book is a collage of over fifty poems mixed with notes, personal musings, quotes from unfinished stories, and conversations with his imaginary friend, H.L.
Raw, beautiful, unedited, and haphazard, this book is an exploration into the heartaches of trying to find faith in Love while living in a universe where our circumstances, religious traditions, cultural assumptions, pain, shame, and trauma make that almost impossible. Caleb unpacks difficult subjects, not with the confidence of someone with solutions and answers, but with the vulnerability of someone wrecked, hungry, and desperate for Love as a person - his Heart's Longing.
