‘A refreshingly original meditation… I wish I had written it myself’ Literary Review

Graveyards are oases: places of escape, peace and reflection. Liminal sites of commemoration, where the past is close enough to touch. Yet they also reflect their living community – how in our restless, accelerated modern world, we are losing our sense of connection to the dead.

Jean Sprackland – the prize-winning poet and author of Strands – travels back through her life, revisiting her once local graveyards. In seeking out the stories of those who lived and died there, remembered and forgotten, she unearths what has been lost.
