"A book to lift your heart and delight the eyes."
Sarah Poyntz gives a striking picture of life in the unique landscape of the Burren of Co. Clare. She describes the changing seasons, the birds and animals, the wild flowers for which the Burren is famous and the lives of the people of the village of Ballyvaughan.
The quotations from poetry throughout the diaries reveal her emotional and poetic response to the special environment of the Burren. As she says in her introduction to this collection, "My aim is to try to convey my love for, and joy and delight in, this most beautiful region, Ireland's greatest natural glory."
The diaries are superbly illustrated with many newly commissioned watercolours
