What Lies Behind, Luann Hiebert’s debut collection of poetry, explodes the notion of the common and everyday.

The seductive songs of motherhood and love and spingtime on the prairies are confronted with illness, death, and the coldness of time marching on without us. With the weight of history behind her, Hiebert arrests the patterns of daily life and in their place leaves a beautiful truth that is more awesome and delightful than memory could serve.


Luann Hiebert's What Lies Behind is a strong debut volume of lyric poetry that meditates on the middle of life from a prairie landscape.
