BEING an ‘Essex Girl’ myself I was expecting to be taken on a trip down memory lane immersed in Linda’s musings whilst she was walking through the bluebells in Okenden Woods, or picnicking on the village green in picturesque Finchingfield.
But alas no such memories were to be found. However Linda’s poetry is simple, non-indulgent and honest.
She has been writing poetry from an early age, so the poems span around 50 years, from fifteen-years-old to present day.
It is interesting to note the change in perspective and attitude as Linda matures.
There are poems written as a teenager that are angst ridden and rebellious, and those that are sentimental and questioning as Linda experiences love, loss and happiness throughout her life.
This is a slim volume, nothing is hard to understand, these reflections and observations are universal – such is life.
Reflections of Life from an Essex Girl is available from the following online retailers: Angus & Robertson, Booktopia, Amazon and Kogan.
