This second poetry collection from Dinah Read, author of A Life Well Lived, reveals a series of verses not previously published, verses that reflect a lifetime of experience. Dinah expresses the ebb and flow of life's events, the changing nature of human emotions and a series of her own intense random memories.

The poems span the early years of teenage joy, the sorrows felt through mature human relationships, marriage and the bonds of motherhood up to the present day. In Long Ago and Far Away, Dinah expertly weaves together themes of love and humanity with vibrant accounts of the natural landscape and the animals that inhabit this wild world.

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”
