'Between Heather and Grass by Xenia Tran is a poetry book focused on Asian styles. It is accompanied by photographs of whippets in natural settings. The combination of beautifully entwining words, charming animals, and alluring countrysides make this poetry collection uniquely special.
The author has supplied a bibliography for readers interested in learning more about poetry. She has also included her own descriptions of the forms of poetry she chose for this book.
I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages.
One more note regarding this book: proceeds from the sales go to a worthy cause.' (Jessica Lucci)
'The joyful lifestyles of Eivor and Pearl are lovingly depicted through thoughtful poetry and beautiful images. My favorite is "Gratitude," accompanied by the dancing whippets. A relaxing journey through the seasons in the Scottish highlands.' (Terri Schrandt)
'Heart warming, inspirational and provocative in equal measure. A collection of works evocative of the sometimes bleak, but ever welcoming Scottish Highlands. It's a book filled with kind observations, nuanced declarations of affection, and gentle reflections on the passing years. A sand timer for the seasons in life.' (Dr Lecter)
'Between Heather and Grass is a second lovely book from Xenia Tran, combining verse and beautifully scenic photography, not forgetting two gorgeous whippets. The complementary poetry and photos capture the majesty of the Highlands, showcasing the mountains, glens, lochs, forests and the beautiful beaches that Eivor and Pearl enjoy exploring. Visually satisfying and inspiring with spiritual connotations, this is a book to pick up again and again. If you're a poetry, nature and/or animal lover this book is a must...one to appreciate by dipping into or enjoying in one sitting, with verses such as this...'the flow/ of black rock and turquoise waves/ ocean's beauty/ between us on the shore/ the memories keep growing.'
Between Heather and Grass supports Children With Cancer UK, in memory of a young family member as well as rehoming centres.' (Cathy Ryan)
