“Like the painting of Vermeer, Jessicca Daigle’s alluring debut collection privileges the reader with moments so quiet they are all too often overlooked by others, despite the indelible ways in which they mark and transform an individual life. Alongside lyrical meditations on what it means to be a daughter, a lover, and especially a mother, Always After Our Fall invites us to imagine and at times to reimagine the lives of other women, among them, Mary Magdalene, whose story unfolds in a sequence of sensuously realized portraits and persona poems.” - Jacqueline Kolosov
