Sarah Moore book review

Vintage Home Book Review

I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of Sarah Moore’s, Vintage Home, book to review. It was sent by The Works, which I have to admit, is a shop I am pretty familiar with. I love that I can walk in, and find books on subjects I wouldn’t even have thought about looking for, as well as those I have. Usually at a pretty reasonable price too!

This is the first poem I have ever shared with anyone other than a few lucky ducks who will have heard some compulsory ramblings in my school years! The most challenging aspect of this post was taking a photo of a woman in a mirror. (Okay, it is a photo of a woman in a picture, in a mirror, but I assure you it was no easy task!) So here goes…
