Quietness and conflict, life and death, place and memory, politics and pity, friendship and peace. In Words Out of Silence, Jill Segger weaves a tapestry of poetry and prose that takes us on journeys of personal transformation set against (and responsive to) the backdrop of turmoil in the world around us. The common ground of the words in this book is silence, and specifically the silence of the Quaker Meeting. This is the source of its deep humanity: something that will appeal both to those who see themselves as 'religious' and those who do not.

Industry Reviews

This book will speak not just to people who consider themselves 'religious', but to many who do not; to Quakers and to those of different traditions - Christian and otherwise - who are searching for connectedness and humility in a world of increasing division and hubris. - Simon Barrow, Director of Ekklesia

It is in her poems' interplay with her prose that Jill Segger shows the power of words to speak truth. Her prose is personal, political and passionate. - Rachel Mann, writing in the Foreword
