Lyrical grace combined with a sharp eye for imagery and a precise use of language are her hallmarks. Her themes are history, religion, and distinctively for this book, memory, highlighted in her sequence about an amnesiac and in the final section of sonnets, an imaginative chronicle of immigrant forebears.
"... an enviable clarity of intent, purpose and execution"
Ian MacMillan, Poetry Review
