These poems are as varied in the topics they address as they vary in style from the sombrely thoughtful to the playful. All are routed in the actualities of daily life, often in the familial and social cohesiveness which Joan experienced while living in Bolton. They are also keenly responsive to the natural world, to the sea and various landscapes of Ireland and Scotland. The finely observed detail and sensitive reflection are expressed in language made alive by its rhythms and images, deftly shaped and controlled. The relaxed colloquial tone deal with jokiness and with deeper realities Joan was so much aware of, life, death and spirituality. It is a sense of affirmation arising from her confident faith that forms the lasting impression made by these poems. -- John Cassidy
