I don’t know if the popularity of the Gaithers in gospel music has faded, but the popularity of this volume of poetry seems to have passed. This is not particularly good poetry, though it does seem to be honest. This is a multi-generation volume with Gloria Sickal Gaither’s mother and daughters contributing, as well as Gloria herself. I suspect it has primarily been of interest to people who are fans of the Gaithers’ music. I could see this also appealing to teenagers because of the contributions of Amy (teen) and Susanne (young adult). However, it has no lasting poetic value. I recommend putting it the young adult area (to see if circulation revives there), or possibly giving it to a local church for their library, or simply turning it loose as a discard so it can find its way to someone who collects Gaither memorabilia.
