Many of you already know about my oldest son from a previous post, This Man Is My Son . I have another son with different challenges. While my oldest son still lives in the imprisonment of addiction, my other son lives imprisoned behind bars. Every week or so I receive an envelope prominently stamped across the front of it in bold black ink “__________ Prison.” It breaks my heart. At first every envelope contained a hand written poem. I typed each of those poems and published them as “Poems with Thorns” a few years ago. There are two more volumes waiting to be processed.
If you happen to be a Kindle Unlimited member, you can read the book for free. The Kindle version is only $1.99. I love to read on my Kindle but its heart warming to hold my son’s book in my hands. I’m giving 3 readers the opportunity to have a copy of the book. All I ask is that you consider leaving a review. All you need to do is be one of the first three to claim the book here. Note, the book is written under a pen name, Onslow Mansbridge.
I look forward to your comments and it would be fantastic if you would be kind enough to post an honest review.

Margie you are very brave the way you write about your sons. I know it is hard. Sending hugs for you.
I would love to read and comment on your son’s book. I loved his other one
I would like to read his poetry.
I’ll get you a copy
I downloaded it Margie and am very much looking forward to reading it. Will post a review once done.
Thanks, Kelly. Nice to see your name pop up!
I downloaded it too, Margie. I admire you so much & your sons as well. I will write a review when I’m done.
I will download and review as well. I very much want to read it.
I’ve read Poems with Thorns twice now, and I need to think about your son’s words for awhile, let them sink in, and then I’ll post a review. I’m glad I read the book. It gave me much to think about.
Janet, thank you for taking time to read the book. Two times – wow. Your honesty in review is appreciated
I published a brief review on Amazon today. It was my pleasure to do so.
Sorry I didn’t see this earlier. Thank you so much for your review.
