About this product
- DescriptionEvocative and beautiful, this anthology tracks between the dualities of the rain-washed skies of Doughmore, County Cork, and the Queensland rainforest and national and personal histories. Inspired by the poet's experiences near Blarney in Ireland as well as her New Zealand homeland and family, the lighthearted yet daring verses reflect a questing, generous, civilized mind. The poetry ultimately succeeds by being tough-minded and wary.
