Where Memories And Dreams Are One
by Janet Drake, Sara Procter and Emily Marsh
About the Book
An anthology of poetry by three young women, from three generations of the same family writing at different periods of the twentieth century. Their poetry was originally written in diaries as a private expression of their hopes, fears and dreams. This collection illustrates how they movingly express common themes of young adulthood: identity, relationship, meaning, loss and hope for the future. It is illustrated throughout with photographs.
