Quietness and conflict, life and death, place and memory, politics and pity, friendship and peace. In Words Out of Silence, Jill Segger weaves a tapestry of poetry and prose that takes us on journeys of personal transformation set against (and responsive to) the backdrop of turmoil in the world around us. The common ground of the words in this book is silence, and specifically the silence of the Quaker Meeting. This is the source of its deep humanity: something that will appeal both to those who see themselves as ‘religious’ and those who do not.
