Description

From the writer whose earlier books have been described as "a radiant prism of colour, memory and longing" and acclaimed as "ripe - ready to move into song" comes Bloodroot, Warland's personal telling of the loss of her mother.
In this compelling and beautiful work of creative non-fiction, writer and poet Betsy Warland takes the reader with her as she negotiates her mother's growing incapacity and death. Her narrative traces the story that bound them together in the mother-daughter relationship, and her reflections help her find clarity, understanding and acceptance. Warland weaves a common ground that moves beyond duty and despair, providing both questions and guideposts for readers, particularly those faced with ageing and ill parents and their loss.
