Raised From Dust - Alison Stedman
Local Author - Alison Stedman is better known on the Isle of Man as Alison Leishman. This is her third published book of poetry.
In this collection of poems, Alison takes us on a journey around the world, from the familiar sight of a homeless man on the streets to the wonders of Asian countryside and culture. With sentiments echoing Ecclesiastes, she mourns the transient nature of our lives and all that we see around us. She then flips the coin and explores birth and rebirth, leading to a hope that transcends our temporal existence here on earth.
