The poems in the first part of this collection include a journey back to Mary O'Donnell's South Ulster border past, variations on the theme of landscape and travel, and a number of meditative visions of the rituals of love. Other poems praise the heroism and endurance of human experience, both contemporary and historic, which O'Donnell connects to themes of childhood, love and death. At the same time she undertakes her quest with a characteristic sensuousness which will delight new readers, as well as readers of her previous work.
