When a feminist and a monk fall in love, poetry results.
"Here is a picture of woman's divided loves, for a love in Ireland and for one in Australia, drawn with rare honesty and compelling strength of observation which involves the reader. Here is writing not afraid to be vulnerable, not trapped in literary artifice, not reticent about emotion, its hopes, its fears, its withdrawals and assertions, which we all share and which enrich our humanity. A memorable picture emerges of a contemporary woman, intelligent and able to feel deeply, who is not afraid to feel the incompleteness, the unfinished edges of human love." -- Barrett Reid.
