“An intimate yet sweeping collection from a startling new voice on the scene- from ephemeral landscapes to insightful recollection, these poems will resonate with you long after the last page”

– Susan Ireland Author of Sight Unseen

“Kelly’s poems practically sing “like prayer cushions intricately / woven with patterns of / the past”. They are filled with moments exquisite delicacy and a freshness so needed in the hubbub of everyday life. Memories of grandmothers, sewing with mother, sunny picnics and picked periwinkles tied up with love and laughter – this is a book we all need after 2020!”

– Haley Jenkins Editor Selcouth Station Press

“This exquisitely-crafted poetry collection is an extraordinary combination of delicacy and strength. In it Elisabeth explores the building blocks of our lives (nature, hope, family, love) with a fresh honesty that makes for a moving and utterly beautiful book.”

– Charlotte Oliver, Poet
