Evocative poems celebrating the bond between grandparent and child

Inspired by childhood memories of her own grandparents, Vicky Arthurs’ vivid poetry captures time spent together and wonders shared. This poetic family memoir explores of themes of love, war, nature and innocence. Some poems are seen through the eyes of a child, while others are remembrances and re-imaginings of her grandparents’ lives.

Written with warmth and charm, Limehaven (Poems for my grandparents) 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…”  (Elaine Cusack, Culture, The Journal)
