'The grammar of grapes is a selection of Heather Sladdin’s poems, many of which have been published in magazines and literary journals. With a gentle air of erotica blowing through them, they deal with human relationships, frustration, intimacy, sensuality and the mysterious nature of memory. Initially the physical and emotional landscape is set in dark hues, yet eventually, the poetry elevates us to life’s effervescent light, profound beauty and mystery. By using subtle rhyme and a rhythm building up to the unstated, Heather is able to penetrate our hearts, haunting us with the unseen. She understands the power of silent moments, empty spaces where the reader can enter and become part of the evolving landscape.'
