Rachel Piercey and Emma Wright

Rachel Piercey is a poet and editor for adults and children. She regularly performs her poems and runs writing workshops at schools and festivals across the country. Emma Wright runs The Emma Press.


Sweet, truthful, moving and occasionally funny, these twelve poems will resonate with you whether you’re in love and want to luxuriate, or through with love and want to wallow.

If you love romantic things, you’ll love this book. If you’re looking for the perfect romantic gift, look no further. And if you’re not sure if poetry is your thing but would like to give it a try, this illustrated beauty is the perfect place to start.


‘Piercey’s oscillations between lover’s ecstasy and love poet’s objectivity are so deft that her analytical lens becomes as much a fascination as the amorous perspective which it focuses.‘ – Oxonian Review

‘fresh, moving, contemporary and often wryly humorous.’ – Lindsay Waller-Wilkinson

‘wry and sparky and filled with wonderful turns and jumps’ – LiteratureWorks

‘a genuinely beguiling whole; a perfect lover’s gift.’ – Magma
