Lynn Davies' first collection brings together poems astonished with the fierce power of love. With a remarkable sureness of tone and clarity and immediacy of perception, she surrenders to the demands of a fully experienced life, and to the necessity to honour it with poetry. She chronicles the hilarities, the struggles, the innocence of family life, with the exact rightness of the children in her poem who invent a universe of play from a gutted dishwasher. And throughout the book, the lonely beauty of the Maritimes is a vision of the most silent reaches of the self.
