" This poetic memoir deconstructs Indigenous stereotypes, as Terese Marie Mailhot disrupts what her narrative should look like, re-imagining personal sovereignty on her own terms! " said.

" Interesting themes, but struggled with the writing. " said.

" This short memoir deals with a lot of pretty heavy stuff, including child abuse, mental illness, poverty, and the struggles of indigenous cultures. Despite the brutality of the topics, the language is richly poetic and gripping. " said.

"This was an artfully crafted memoir. It was honest, strong, mournful, beautiful. The book itself was small but the content heavy and big. Terese Marie Mailhot has a way with words. You can just FEEL them.

In the afterword she is discussing honesty and disclosure. A statement she made I think really rings true to her book: "Crafting truth to be as bare as it feels (was important)".

This was a book that was being read in a Goodreads book club and I am not sure if I would have come upon it otherwise. So, I am very thankful that this was chosen and that I was able to find and read it. 5/5 stars.

" It took me like a week to read this short book because it was so raw and painful.Also some of the essays were a bit disconnected so it was confusing sometimes. " said.

"Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot is an astounding memoir in essays. Here, is a wound. Here is need, naked and unapologetic. Here is a mountain woman, towering in words great and small. She writes of motherhood, loss, absence, want, suffering, love, mental illness, betrayal, and survival. She does this without blinking but to say she is fearless would be to miss the point. These essays are too intimate, too absorbing, too beautifully written, but never ever too much. What Mailhot has accomplished in this exquisite book is brilliance both raw and refined, testament. " said.

" I don’t even know how to begin. This is unlike anything I’ve read. It feels like you’re inside the author’s mind, looking out at her life as she comes to terms with herself, her family, her past, present, and future. It’s disquieting, often disturbing, brilliantly written. " said.
