"A Christmas Collage," features poetry directly from the Biblical account of the birth of Jesus; also in this book, a special tribute is paid to Joseph, Jesus' earthly father. By writing about aspects of heaven before the Incarnation, or about Jesus' early life in Nazareth, the Author has incorporated into her poetry, ideas which address some of the unknowns of the Christmas story. It is hoped that these poems will bring inspiration and blessing to all readers at this Christmas Season. Born in Jamaica, the West Indies, Rose Hall is proud of her Jamaican heritage and is especially proud of her British education. This education, which culminated in a certificate from the University of Cambridge, England, strengthened her interest in the classics of English Literature, both prose and poetry. She came to the United States in 1970. Mrs. Hall has written all her life but this book of poems, "A Christmas Collage," is her first major publication. Most of her writing is in the English language, however, she enjoys expressing herself in patois which is the dialect commonly spoken in Jamaica. She is currently working on a book of short stories in this genre. At home in Lakeland, Florida, Mrs. Hall is involved in the ministry of Victory Assembly of God, (Victory Church) where she has been a member for twenty years.
