‘Ann Pilling’s poems have the precision gained in a life-time of professional writing, the particular glow of long-treasured memories, and the passion of long-stored speech.’ – Kate Clanchy

‘Through childhood, loss and living, these poems carry the reader with them, through pain, through the warmth and wisdom of their final lines.’ – Alison Brackenbury

‘These are poems of great poise and insight; to quote Edwin Muir, they are written with ‘a mixture of enjoyment and hard work’. Here..we see a poet who can distinguish between the true and false, an exhilarating and achieved voice.’ – Penelope Shuttle
