    Manna in the Morning is, quite simply, a lovely book. As she revisits holy texts, Jacqueline Jules gracefully connects ancient stories with modern times, gaining insights into her own quandaries and gently suggesting paths through which all of us may traverse our conflicts and crises. Go ahead and feast on the spiritual sustenance that Manna in the Morning provides. You won’t regret it. —Erika Dreifus, author of Birthright: Poems and Quiet Americans: Stories Jules explores contemporary faith with nuance and sensitivity, braiding together the ancient world and twenty-first century. She’s particularly interested in the roles women play in the Biblical texts and brings a lively feminist sensibility to her poems: “I’m Miriam/holding a tambourine,/dancing in the desert, grateful/for the smallest excuse/to sing.” —Katherine E. Young, author of Day of the Border Guards, Poet Laureate Emerita, Arlington, Va.   MANNA IN THE MORNING by Jacqueline Jules Kelsay Books, 2021 Available at  ww
