The poems in this collection trace the journey of grief undertaken by Vanessa Furse Jackson
after she lost her husband Robb. Yet while profoundly moving, they are not despairing or dispiriting. The poems are powerful, continually surprising and always sensitive to place and atmosphere. The road travelled may be a personal one, but the discoveries along the way have universal resonance, offering comfort to any who have suffered a similar experience. These are poems both rich and strange, sorrowful yet celebratory and ultimately reaching towards hope.
