Review:
If you love poetry and can see within its words a way to consider a deeper spirituality then this book is without doubt for you. A beautiful collection of R S Thomas's poetry, with a poem for each week of the year, and beside it gentle words of contemplation and questioning from Jim Cotter that dig at the heart and insight of Thomas's work to help show it to it's best spiritual advantage. The reader is guided and helped to gain their own insight into not only the richness of the poetic words but also their own spirit. Originally written for the local parish this book is now being introduced to an international market to tie in with the centenary of Thomas's birth, and as such is likely to be welcomed by those who love R S Thomas's work, or those who are likely to visit the Llyn Peninsula and Aberdaron especially.
