Patricia Brodie's poetic knife is well honed as she pares down to theessence of what it means to be mother/wife/lover/friend/careerwoman/expatriate in today's world. She skillfully carves words intowell-crafted pieces to complete a work that both genders will want to viewagain and again. ‹Ellaraine Lockie, poet, nonfiction author, educator

Patricia Brodie's poems are warm and witty with wonderful surprises for theenchanted reader. Her poems reflect a life of love, friendship and travel,of eucalyptus trees, found treasures of the sea, and the bittersweetmemories of home and family. They sing.‹Victor Howes, past president, New England Poetry Club

Patricia Brodie's poems are sophisticated, warm, sardonic. Whether you are drawn to form or free, you will find much that will please in this variedand very readable collection. Her distinctive voice will linger afteryou've finished. ‹Dorothy Stone, poet
