Review of Plain Song

"Once again we can only marvel at her wye we wirds (way with words), whether in English or in Shaetlin, her insight, the power of her imagination, and the sheer vitality of these vivid poems...The whole book is a moving tribute to all these forgotten people, 'unsung, unseen', ordinary folk living extraordinary lives...The publishers, The Shetland Library, must be congratulated once more on the high standards achieved, standards further enhanced by the striking illustrations in full colour and the excellent overall design. Christine is an outstanding performer of her poetry, and a CD of all the poems with music is also available."
