Lynes distills Canada into poetry; curling, spring in Saskatoon and grape vines in Antigonish weave the country into the book. Lynes reveals a deep understanding of the country we live in and gives voices to this insight in her trademark wry and endearing style. Yet, this is her most serious collection so far, and readers everywhere will find themselves deeply identifying with a woman who "... with somewhat clouded mind, with fond / cautious affection for the farmer's wife I never was, / I stand, brush in hand, ready for ice and whatever may befall me." As she steps out onto the curling rink.
