She remains attentive to the natural world in this new book, and we witness again the deceptive simplicity of her poetic line, and her formal mastery in the representation of both textual spaces and physical landscapes. Her eye for the seasonal patterns of farm life is given new resonance as she recaptures life a century ago, and renders the earth as a space of burial as well as one of renewal. These processes mark the passage of time both during and since the war, and leave a strong impression of bodily absence, and with it a sensation of grief renewed. This cyclical process inevitably invokes loss, yet also fosters healing.

- Dr. Lucy Collins in the Dublin Review of Books, June 2019.
