LIMEHAVEN

Vicky Arthurs’ evocative first poetry collection celebrates the bond between young and old, capturing time spent together and wonders shared. Inspired by childhood memories of her grandparents, Vicky’s 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 book includes delightful title illustrations by British printmaker Kate Heiss.

…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…”

Paul Blake, Brittle Star
