Limehaven

Vicky Arthurs

This evocative poetry collection celebrates the bond between young and old, capturing time spent together and wonders shared. Inspired by childhood memories of her grandparents, Vicky Arthurs' vivid poems explore themes of love, war, nature and innocence. Some poems are seen through the eyes of a child, while others are remembrances and reimaginings of her grandparents' lives. Written with warmth and charm, this poetic family memoir pays tribute to a generation who lived through two World Wars. The poems are performed by the author. Praise for Limehaven: “The book rolls out with a joyous panache… There is a gorgeous childlike voice to these poems, peppered with songs, rhymes and humour.” (Robin Houghton, Envoi) “…the language is simple, there is an immediacy here, a freshness… It illustrates Arthurs’ gift for tenderness, which is so powerfully demonstrated in this collection.” (Paul Blake, Brittle Star) “It’s the best debut collection I’ve read in ages. This delightful, nostalgic book is a love letter to Vicky’s grandparents. The poems are clever and beautiful…” (Elaine Cusack, Culture, The Journal) “With its lyrical form, the poetry is inspired by childhood memory… beautifully presented…” (Mslexia: Indie Presses)
