The poems in Reini-Grandell's second collection time travel her world, taking us on wild, unpredictable journeys to her childhood, into the minds of bears, horses and reindeer, seeing her marriage from her partner's viewpoint, with visitations to the Witch Tree, and her Finnish ancestors. All in all, a celebration of the writer's daunting ability to recreate the universe on her own terms.
