“A bold, brutally honest and dazzling debut collection”
– Deborah Edgeley

Carol J Forrester’s debut collection centres on her childhood as a farmer’s daughter in rural England. Beneath the surface of day-to-day normalities such as cluttered bathrooms, farm life, and countryside superstitions, are poems based on myth and history. Forrester tackles topics such as casual sexism, the pressure placed on young women to fit into an expected trajectory, and finding yourself among the noise.
