Feathers from the Nest is an unconventional compilation of poetry, thoughts and short stories from West Virginia author Avlen L’rae. The collection of work is inconsistent and diverse in a beautiful way. One poem or story might take readers to a dark and mysterious place within one’s self, while the next will leave them laughing at the pure silliness of the moment. Like life … and like people … Feathers from the Nest is a roller coaster of emotions, moments and experiences. Some factual. Some imagined. But all of them real.
