Adhbhar Ar Sòlais / Cause of Our Joy

“Tha farsaingeachd, doimhneachd, aotromas agus cianalas anns a’ chruinneachadh eireachdail seo. Tha Marion F. Nic ’Ille Mhoire gar toirt bho raointean Ghalilee gu saor-làithean ann am Barraigh agus bho thaighean-dealbh Ghlaschu gu sgeulachdan bròin agus aoibhneis ann an Uibhist—an t-eilean far an do rinn i a dachaigh fad iomadh bliadhna. Tha dlùth choimhearsnachd, dàimhean teaghlaich agus creideamh làidir gu sònraichte a’ nochdadh san leabhar seo. Tha a’ bhàrdachd siùbhlach, eirmseach agus drùidhteach ann an iomadh nòs agus stoidhle—mholainn an cruinneachadh seo aig Marion dhuibh gu mòr.” —Gillebrìde Mac ’IlleMhaoil

“There is diversity, depth, lightness and longing in this beautiful collection. Marion F. Morrison takes us from the plains of Galilee to holidays in Barra and from the picture-houses of Glasgow to tales of sadness and joy in Uist—the island where she made her home for many years. Close-knit community, family ties and a deep faith come across strongly in this book. The poetry is flowing, eloquent and poignant using a range of styles—I heartily recommend Marion’s collection to you.” —Gillebrìde MacMillan
