    Praise for Rebecca Hurst 'One of the great pleasures of these poems is the way in which Parson's Wood is intimately known through such precisely placed language.'
    Judith Willson
    'Rebecca Hurst writes as a naturalist, a daughter rolled up into dirt like a woodlouse, a mother, the forest, a snowy singer. She's my favourite unreliable narrator. Words are good but touch is better. Take The Iron Bridge. She'll let you walk ahead. Be pinched by the links. Take a scalding sip. Be magicked back to life.'
