Editorial Reviews

"Award-winning Canadian poet, Alice Major, has been recognised for the way in which her writing evokes the universal character and concerns of human nature that connect us with those who came before and those who will come after. Major's latest collection of poems, Memory's Daughter, is no exception. This collection meshes the past with the present, drawing together the sacred and the secular while elevating the daily struggles and tragedies of quotidian experience to mythical heights.... Major's collection remains a lyrical and moving tribute to the power of our stories and memories, which shape us even as we imagine we are shaping them.
