N.C. Poet Laureate Kathryn Stripling Byer says of this book:

"Like William Wordsworth, Glenda Beall was raised knowing well the "yoke of earth,"how the fields, pastures and woodlands yield both beauty and terror. Her evocationsof being a daughter in the deep South, growing up on a farm, riding her mare, witnessing death and tragedy, as well as joy and fruitfulness, ring absolutely true. She gives us love poems from a mature woman's perspective,too, and poems that celebrate the vistas and culture of the mountains where she now lives. Every poem pulses with detail that brings life back to us in all its varied detail and music. The "yoke of earth" is also the poet's yoke, and she bears it gladly."

Nancy Simpson, poet, editor, teacher says:

In this poetry collection, Now Might as Well Be Then, "Contentment finds Glenda Beall moving from present to past, from past to present, easily as stepping room to room in a house. With brilliance she uses simultaneity to blend memory with the strong desire for life now."
