Mary Willette Hughes’ second book, “Flight on New Wings,” contains fifty therapeutic poems for those in a treatment program for addiction.  It chronicles the true story of a son, his mother’s, father’s and family’s experiences related to the disease of active addiction. The son had been abused at a young age by an older man. The ramifications of that event and how it contributed to his journey into addiction are revealed through poetry, mostly through poems of memory, that relate the events of his life before and after treatment.

The poet’s first published book of poetry is a memoir of her life, beginning with her childhood on a farm in southern Minnesota. Mary’s recollections on college, marriage, and parenting form the middle section of the book, followed by observations of her parents’ and loved one’s journeys  into death. This unique collection of poems brings together pieces of lived experiences, stitching them together like a story-quilt spanning the years between the poet’s birth in 1932 to the time of publication in 2001.
