Bearing Fruit By Tyneisha Ternent
About Bearing Fruit
One line or two?
With this simple question, Tyneisha Ternent begins her collection of poems charting her first pregnancy’s emotional and physical roller coaster ride.
Between the moment of realization and birth are three trimesters and their differing concerns and moods. Tyneisha asks herself if she’s good enough to be a mom, gains confidence, loses it, considers pregnancy weight, and forgiveness. Tyneisha feels stress, anxiety, discomfort, wonder, and love.
Tyneisha’s poetry is characterized by a simple seriousness and wry sense of humor- sometimes fragile, sometimes blunt and down-to-earth. Illustrated throughout in line-drawings by Ryan Ternent, Bearing Fruit speaks to mothers worldwide, encouraging them to find their own strong voices.

Praise About This book
The gift of new life
This book is brimming with so much that it is overflowing at times. Not all women want that life, while other have yet to meet someone they want to share that life with. It is hard to even put into words what it brought to the surface for me. One day, I hope I can fully understand stand the beauty laid out across these pages. Until then, I will have to swim in the depths her ink has created.
I received a free copy from herself and am volunteering an honest review for the benefit of others.
