A beautiful Book of Poetry, I read her poems over and over again and have given copiesof it to my friends. Keep up the good work Helen
by Mairead Rabbitte
I really enjoyed this book. The poetry reminds me of Patrick Kavanagh's and Seamus Heaney's. I liked the fact that all poems are based on personal experience- whether it be love of music and its power to heal, the joys of Travel or how much little little things can help in illness. Helen shows great insight and empathy into human nature in all its guises. I like to take up the book and flip through its pages. Now I am looking at "Remedy" page 53- it speaks to my soul.
