We need poetry like this." -Sally Evans, poet and Editor, Poetry Scotland. "Thanks to an exhilarating directness and a worked-for simplicity of language, not to mention a nicely self-deprecating sense of humour on occasion, this is a book full of sharply drawn images, honest poignancy and frank admissions."-Poet-Journalist Tom Phillips.

One never knows how poetry will affect one. Tears, laughter, passion; poetry does it all, right? Interestingly, when I perused Grace Stewart's "Where the Butterflies Go," I could not help but be struck by the idea that for some reason, the author smells like a Thai pizza. And that cannot be a bad thing....

Readers will have to take this as on faith. Better yet, they should buy a copy and have a whiff for themselves.

HASH(0xa37575a0) out of 5 stars In the Early Morning Hush April 27 2009
By Larry H. Leitner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Heather Grace Stewart has written a collection of poems that contain a great deal of humanity and compassion for the world around her. Her poems at times can feel like she wrote them especially for you. In the Early Morning Hush summed up my own relationship with my own wife I couldn't get over it. She was quite ill at the time I read it and has since left us. Heather's words contain a great deal of healing power for me and I will be forever grateful for that.

HASH(0xa37575f4) out of 5 stars Fresh and Uplifting Voice for Canadian Poetry Feb. 22 2012
By Tashtoo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Heather Grace Stewart shares a lovely journey with us in her premier poetry collection. Butterflies deals with meaty issues, the modern family, the state of the world...and while the depth of subject for most writers has a tendency to lend towards darker writes, the hope for better resonates throughout all the pieces. A fantastic addition for any collector of modern poetry.

HASH(0xa37578d0) out of 5 stars Brilliantly captivating!! June 29 2012
By Lucinda - Published on
Format: Paperback
This work of collected poems by Heather Grace Stewart is original and truly unique, that digs deep within your soul and touches your heart. The writing is beautifully mesmerizing and captures the essence of life, from youth to adulthood. I was touched and moved by how I could relate and empathize with what the writer was trying to say, that connected to my own life and self in such an analogous way. I found them emotive as I connected to them, being deeply touched by an author whose observations on life are spot on. They painted an honest, clear picture of growing up with a touch of added femininity that is memorable and poignant. These poems seem to speak for themselves and take on an entire new deeper meaning, as you relive life surrounding you with the past, present and future before you. The sections pain, growth and family were well thought out and introduced you to each different phase within life, with fluidity that made you want to read on. Each poem tells a different story, presenting to the reader a new message that is thought-provoking to the core and which you ultimately identify with. Each poem is truth-drawing, showing the world as it is in vivid color with nothing glossed over but left bare for you to explore. This has to be the most wonderful anthology of poetry that I have ever been fortunate enough to have read; hence I cannot enthuse enough to all those readers who as yet have not discovered Heather Grace Stewarts work. It is atmospheric, genuine, unforgettable and truly remarkable by an accomplished and skilled writer who has something to tell. I could feel what the writer was feeling through each word, which was carefully chosen to express those emotions and thoughts that were happening. Every poem was brought to life with imagery and description that was so precise and defined; all down to the meticulous effort that was apparent by the writer. This collection of poems is highly readable, enjoyable with underlying poignant messages.

HASH(0xa3757df8) out of 5 stars An Emotional Collection June 28 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'll start by saying that I've never read a full collection of poetry, and the only poetry I've enjoyed were a few raunchy works by Charles Bukowski. I bought the collection and began reading the first few works with scepticism. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it. I was wrong. From the first work, Lady, a haunting poem about Lady Diana, to the last, Rewind, an affirmation of life, I found myself moved.

The collection starts with some works about social justice and the wrongs of the world we live in. Some, like Just Visiting, struck at my emotions and made me feel terrible for someone I don't know. But that is the author's gift, she can cause a stir of emotion in a few words. In Somewhere Between Two and Five, a poem about children, a huge smile came to my face when I read, "We even played games of... if you show me yours...I'll show you mine...with no strings attached." Again, a lot of emotion, only this time it was light and fun.

As the collection continues the works evolve toward marriage, family, and children. Again, the poet puts into words the emotion many of us have felt during that phase of life. 12 Months to go: Bad Advice on Marriage, was a very funny work. So was The Truth About Marriage, where she compares pop culture to real life.

I'd recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys thinking about what they have read long after you put your Kindle down. To me, that's the definition of a 5 star book.

My favorite poem- The Pilot. Buy the book, you'll see why.

HASH(0xa37576b4) out of 5 stars Heartfelt, stunning poetry Sept. 4 2012
By Victoria Ceretto - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ms. Stewart offers her readers a collection of accessible, emotionally engaging poetry. She covers pain, social issues and family in a manner that is both accessible and eloquent, presenting her poems with simplicity. Her treament of social issues is subtle, compelling and non-divisive, which is refreshing in this age of political extremism. The section on family covers both the difficulties and delights of marriage and parenting and could be used as a primer for young couples. I recommend her work to those who have an aversion or fear of poetry because of its clarity and emotional balance. I read it on my Kindle and had no problem with formatting which is, at times, an issue for poetry. If my review seems too superlative, well, it deserves it.
