Gaelic poems with English translations by the author on themes of religion and spirituality, family, daily life in Uist, and the author’s upbringing in Glasgow and Barra. The collection received second place in the 2018 Donald Meek Award for Gaelic literature; the author is the 2017 winner of the Scottish Book Trust Gaelic New Writers Award for poetry.
“There is diversity, depth, lightness and longing in this beautiful collection. Marion F. Morrison takes us from the plains of Galilee to holidays in Barra and from the picture-houses of Glasgow to tales of sadness and joy in Uist—the island where she made her home for many years. Close-knit community, family ties and a deep faith come across strongly in this book. The poetry is flowing, eloquent and poignant using a range of styles—I heartily recommend Marion’s collection to you.”
