In My Father's House

Moonstone Press, Philadelphia, 2019

poetry about family and place, loss and abiding love

Josephine LoRe’s In My Father's House is one of the most moving volumes of poetry I have ever read. I am filled with amazement and gratitude for her precious words, written and spoken with such exquisitely gentle passion.  In My Father’s House is a miracle of remembrance.

               - Billy Brown, host of Fixed and Free readings and publisher


In My Father’s House is a poetic collection resonating with love and grief. The closeness of family sparks at the heart of these poems in textures that only a daughter can illuminate. The special daughter-father connection thrums through Josephine LoRe’s profound attention to detail and image. This engaging and tender elegy is a gift of reflection on time and loss. 

- Micheline Maylor PhD, author of The Bad Wife
