Product Description

Poems about life and death, modern family life, and hope

From the author of Carry On Dancing and Leap. Heather Grace Stewart ( is an author, poet, and photographer. Her poems have appeared in Canadian literary journals, international anthologies (Routes, Babylon Burning) e-zines, and the British small presses. Where the Butterflies Go is her first complete collection. Reviews:"Whirlwind poetry that never hesitates. . . always delightful and rarely what you expect. 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. "These poems have a humanity, a goodness, an almost other-worldliness about them." -Tony Lewis-Jones, Author of Anytime and nine other collections.

4.0 out of 5 stars I know a good book when I smell it April 30 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Early Morning Hush April 27 2009
By Larry H. Leitner - Published on
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.

5.0 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Collection June 8 2013
By Louise Hastings - Published on
Heather Grace Stewart's poetry is intelligent, moving and left me thinking long after I had finished reading. Each poem in this collection is beautifully crafted and heartfelt. I believe that even readers who don't think they like poetry will love reading this book and I would highly recommend it. I very much look forward to reading more of Heather's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate and Gripping Dec 9 2012
By Kellie Elmore - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Heather Grace Stewart manages to narrate life in a familiar way that leaves you agreeing out loud, as if she read our thoughts and put them to paper. This collection visits themes concerning simple daily life routines to the horrors and heartbreak of war and terrorism. Heather is the voice for every woman and leads you through thoughts we have all shared. Where the Butterflies Go is both intimately tender and tragically sad. A beautiful blend of poetry, narrative and insight. Highly recommend.

5.0 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.
