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

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 Brilliantly captivating!! June 29 2012
By Lucinda - Published on
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.

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.

By enjamoori - Published on

It is a matter of mere accident, a pleasurable one though, that I came across this zestful writer.
As soon as I saw few pictorial quotes in her blog, I realized here is a material to read.
Then, I went after butterflies to see where they are going. I must admit, they did not go to any wonderland. But, they made surroundings so wonderful with the poetic ease, truthful bliss and genuine emotions. No word in the collection has come for decoration, words flowed through as there was no other alternative. If you are a romanticist, here you have lot of serious truths in a romantic style. Happy Reading..!!
