About the Book

Consider a love letter composed in verse for someone who is still unknown.

To You in the Night is a confession of love, written for someone who does not yet have a name or a face. It is a letter without a specific recipient or muse. Spanning many years and places, the poems within can be read alone or as pieces of the larger narrative. Many of the verses include lessons learned by the poet Carton from her own past relationships and truths gifted to her from passersby—each one interspersed throughout the book like pushpins on the road map of her life.

This collection of poetry offers a unique take on the subject of love and the idea that it can be felt for someone you haven’t even met yet.

I’m certain you’re out there
kissing someone,
hoping that they are me,
and when I find you,
I’ll show you all the
things you’ve missed.

I know in my bones,
you’ll show me too.
