AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Romaine Moreton's poetry is much more than that, each piece of work is a journey. Her words take the reader through time to the world of our peoples. The bitterness and anger is justified, but tempered by a strong spiritual presence...' Burraga Gutya. (source: backcover)
