At the heart of many of these poems lies an apprehension of things being lost or destroyed, and with this a need for consolation.

The question of how we look for, or create, such solace - whether in faith or the rain, by doing a puzzle or watching TV - is one that threads through the book.

In this work - her second collection - there is an increasing scope and depth to language as Stoddart seeks to explore paradoxes: poems of motherhood are double-edged celebrations, grief must come to some good.

The ambivalence at work in her first book comes to intriguing fruition here in a collection of original and distinctive poems.
