Jewel is a star, yet this collection of poetry brings us closer. A Night Without Armor strips this musician of her guitar, yet her voice is still true in poems that touch on difficult relationships, travel, growing up talented and challenged in Alaska, and coming to terms with her emotions. This is an intriguing collection by one of our most versatile and risk-taking artists.
