“a beautifully arranged collection, the moving story of a single life’s journey towards wisdom and insight. Christine Coates’ poetic voice balances mystery with simplicity; she manages to evoke both a universally shared experience and a uniquely South African landscape and history."

Finuala Dowling, Author

“Proof that the examined life is worth living, Christine Coates’ poems offer a sensuous and fearless narrative of a history both personal and political.”

Beverly Rycroft, Author
