This book is a treasure, in all senses of the word. The poetry is rich and personal and evocative. It resonates with the depth of passion and commitment of good poetry. The poems are a storehouse of family jewels and valued friends, mostly women.This is a significant publication for Dame Fiona, and was released on her 70th birthday – her gift to New Zealand readers. It's also what you buy to commemorate the best in print publishing, what you hold up in the air to the incoming barrage of digital publishers and say "OK, but you can't beat this in the beauty stakes".
