BOOK REVIEW

WILD GOOSEBERRIES OF HAILUNG by Frances Corkey Thompson
Indigo Dreams Publishing 978-1-909357-67-9
 
Thompson explores the extraordinary resource of her fathers letters written at a time when he was a missionary in China.  With this inspiration she sets out to follow his tracks and in doing so produces a series of poems that are outstanding and memorable.  They evoke the whole sense of adventure and discovery which brings her close to the memories in the letters of her father and the places and people that he knew.

Outstanding poems for me – Pouring Tea, The Elderly Children of the Missionaries, Having Invented
