It is never too late to become all that you envision. Your birth happens more than once so sink into each feeling of uncertainty and ride with the waves.

From loneliness, fear, and change comes a breathtaking collection of poetry that inspires strength and self-healing during a time when we couldn’t feel farther apart.

What the Moon Gave Her is a poetry collection born from self-discovery. The debut collection from Christi Steyn delves into themes of self-doubt, anxiety, and the unprecedented loss felt during the height of the pandemic. Beauty is found in every corner of this book's six dynamic chapters––"birth by the ocean", “you plucked too many petals," “how to grow wings,” "dancing dolphins,” "full moon/bloom" and "two trees intertwined"

What the Moon Gave Her is a moving collection about rebirth and the way we reconnect with the world around us through love.
