The Frayed Heart (Fiery Arrow Press) Paperback December 2018

The Frayed Heart (Fiery Arrow Press) was designed by Eoin Flynn, edited by Eileen Casey and published by Fiery Arrow Press, and was on sale at Alan Hanna’s bookshop in Rathmines.

Praise for The Frayed Heart from Theo Dorgan. “To track the robust vicissitudes of love and loss in a form delicate as the haiku is to court considerable risk. That these poems win convincingly through to hope is a testament as much to the craft skills of the poet as to her fine sensibility and her faith in the resilience of the heart.”
