Anne Connolly’s first collection started with a photograph of love-in-a-mist flowers and a search for their Latin name. Many of the poems explore the theme of loyalty and love of one’s country and their inescapable link with conflict throughout the ages, balanced and rounded out by the enduring bonds of affection and parental love.

“With their engaging dialogue between the personal and the political – scathing one moment, poignant the next – these poems by Anne Connolly are wonderfully readable.”
Eleanor Livingstone, StAnza Director

“A wide compassion sings in the precise lyricism of these poems. The overriding sense is one of defiant joy in the ‘in-spite-of-everythingness that is love’ – a life-affirming collection.”
A.C. Clarke
