Hawke’s Bay, Aotearoa New Zealand
poems of resistance, reconciliation and hope
with Hayley MacCormick
Reading poems from Against the Dark is like being taken on a journey through life with an expert guide, who knows the area well and is able to point out the unseen and unexpected along the way. Together with granddaughter Hayley, Joy takes you through some of the hardest terrain while keeping you safe and focussed on the God who is already there.
Reverend Sally Smith (Editor – Quiet Spaces UK)
In ways that touch the deepest recesses of the human spirit, Against the Dark opens the heart to identify the truths that we face, the tragedies that we are well aware of and the delights for which we long. This is a beautiful book, profound, simple. that emerges from a well of deep faith. Don’t just read it. Linger with it.
