JUST SHY OF STARS is Annette Billings' eagerly awaited third book. This collection of poetry reads like a
journey across the continuum of human emotion with stops at the most poignant places in life. In this
book, as with previous ones, Billings writes about sorrow with the same bravado as joy and humor.
