Review of Parallel Worlds

"When at her best, such as in 'Yarbent', the poet can be both subtle and poignant. In it De Luca captures the personal and historical connections that language can provide, and weaves them together in a moving and intelligent tribute...In the book De Luca proves herself to be an excellent story-teller...She tells her story confidently, and the narrative feels both fresh and authentically traditional...With Parallel Worlds, Christine De Luca has produced another good collection of work. She has again proved herself to be both a fine poet and a worthy ambassador for Shetland literature."
