Fever Tree

Jackie Wills

Fever Tree

"Jackie Wills travels through landscapes of place, memory and imagination with a luminous clarity. Many of her poems are rooted in an ordinary, domestic world of family; others take us on journeys - from South Africa to the Sierra Nevada, via Shoreham Airport Café. All are voyages of discover, mapped through her precise observation and vividly sensual images. She manages beautifully the conjuring trick of writing poems that begin with simple moment, observation or place, but that spin off, "tracking soundwaves through space" to become lyrical and humane meditations on the possibilities of life, love and death." Amanda Dalton

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken won the 1987 Commonwealth Poetry Prize with her first book.

In this stunning and unforgettably elegiac book, female sensuality and spirituality are celebrated, standing together rather than split the way Christian culture has encouraged. It is a journey of discovery using very precise language, myths and contemporary writing to question our spiritual condition.

Crossing Point

Myra Schneider

Crossing Point

Myra Schneider writes, "The overall theme [of this collection] is women. 'Mother and Daughter', the core sequence... recreates the life of my grandmother and the earlier life of my mother, drawing on information my mother gave me... A shorter sequence looks at the life of my mother-in-law, a refugee, and the circumstances which shaped her life.
