“Roots of my mountain heritage run deep and the tendrils of these roots are wrapped gently around my heart forever.”
– Coal Poet Sarah L. Cornett – Hagen
A new website has been released for Sarah Cornett-Hagen’s children’s book, “Life Notes by a Kentucky Woman: Looking for the High Point (Volume 3).” It provides the author’s biographical information as well as details on how and where to purchase her books.
The author, Sarah Cornett-Hagen, who recently returned to Kentucky from Texas, now resides in Jenkins, Kentucky, only seven miles away from her place of birth in Haymond. Jenkins proudly promotes itself as a town “built from coal” through prominent billboards.
Sarah’s cherished abode, Still Point, serves as the inspiration for her rich poetry and introspective philosophical writings. Her keen observations of life’s patterns are evident as she casts a spell of wonder through her heartfelt musings on life.
Her latest published work can be found in the anthology “Poetry as Prayer: Appalachian Women Speak” by Wind, while her tribute to Mt. Ashland, titled “Mountain Lady,” is set to be published in “The Rag.” In August 2004, her poem “Blackberry Heaven” was published in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and in 2003, “Colors of Life” captured the essence of Sarah’s uplifting spirit and found a place in the International Library of Poetry.
“Life Notes by a Kentucky Woman: Looking for the High Point (Volume 3)” is a story that details the beginnings of a mountain woman, a coal miner’s daughter, reared in the hills of eastern Kentucky. This volume mainly focuses on her toughness as she faces one of the most heartbreaking events of her life.
