‘a talent for the cool, long-lined lyric. Snow Child, Abegail Morley’s second collection, is rife with the viscerally felt modulations of a mind ill at ease,’ (T.L.S)

‘Abegail Morley’s Snow Child gifts us bold, unflinching, memorable poems, dazzling in their precision and clarity. This is a poet who … will, at times, take our breath away.’ (Catherine Smith)

‘confident and vividly energetic in a way that is entirely captivating… I cannot recommend The Realm of Shells too highly’ (Daily Telegraph)

‘Fanny proves an engaging and perceptive heroine… Overall writes movingly’ (Sunday Times)
