Linda Rose Parkes' second full-length collection marks her out as an original and extremely interesting

talent. Parkes' relentless eye misses nothing, but her control of subject matter is masterly.

Parkes is a bravely candid voice, a deft searcher under surfaces.

Linda Rose Parkes explores what is lost, hidden or half-remembered. This is poetry of human connection, of charged and sometimes fearful moments underlaid by other more shadowy meanings and the haunting rhythms of the sea. - Sue Hubbard (Night Horses)
