‘ Her imagery, honesty and insight make this a first rate work.’ Poetry Ireland Review.

‘ Wyley's best work is intimate and celebratory.. she celebrates love and poetry itself with tenderness and grace.’ George Szirtes, The Irish Times.

' It is the trembling uncertainties of love itself that Wyley captures here in what may well become a heart-book for lovers old and new to carry in their jeans pockets.' Books Ireland.
