The Heart Hungers for Wildness 

The Heart Hungers for Wildness, Diane’s new book of poetry, recounts through verse a life well lived. Combining a writer’s appreciation for detail and a spiritual director’s ability to probe for depth, she brings new appreciation for experiences as diverse as ministering to people through soup-making to traversing Native American lands, as distinct as discovering the joys of grand mothering to sinking her feet into the soil of her native Iowa.
