"When a poem inspires you to wander down to your local inlet to view the spoonbills, herons and pied stilts, then it's not unreasonable to say the poet has made a connection Glint is a dazzling three-part collection
containing poems of place, nature and family. Lois Parker Edstrom ferments, shapes and bakes words, creating an optimal environment for every poem to develop and flourish. Only when it's reached perfection, she presents it to us, often with a subtle spiciness which teases the palate at the end of the tasting. Filled with humour, delicacy, soulfulness, and boldness, this collection is worthy of world-wide recognition."
--Ruth Arnison, QSM, curator of Poems in the Waiting Room, New Zealand
"The precise language of these poems is astounding as it works through both sensation in nature and the soul. This poet melds nature, family, and surprising imagery into a unique equation that is both harsh and
subtle. I feel blindsided in a perfect way when reading this collection; this is work that sticks hard."
--Amy MacLennan, author of The Body, A Tree
