We are delighted that Between Heather and Grass – Poems and Photographs Filled with Love, Hope and Whippets is now available in paperback, ebook and Kindle editions.
When we selected images and poems for our first collection Sharing Our Horizon (September 2018), a few poems were set aside especially for this second book. One of those poems was A Message from the Stars, a poem about our nine-year old nephew Jamie Baker who suffered from leukaemia. His story shows us what love, football and a big dream can do, even in the most difficult circumstances.
With these poems in place, I dedicated the following year to creating photographs and poems that would flow naturally through the seasons with these earlier verses.
Your feedback and encouraging words helped us to select the most popular poems among these. In addition, the lovely bloggers among you who host regular photo and poetry challenges inspired us to look at what had been written from a different perspective.
As with our first book, we have created Between Heather and Grass to help raise funds for animal rehoming shelters, a cause very close to our heart.
We are also supporting Children with Cancer UK, in memory of our nephew Jamie. This charity works hard to find better and kinder ways to treat children with cancer. Their mission is to help every child ring their end of treatment bell, and to keep families together.
We want to say a very big thank you to Darlene Swanson for the book design and to the teams at Reedsy and Ingram Spark for putting everything together.
Our book is available in paperback and can be ordered from your local bookstore, online bookstores, Amazon, Indie Bound, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Fishpond, Adlibris and any other store connected to the IngramSpark Global network.
Our Apple Book can be downloaded from Apple Books in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

A very big thank you for all your love, support and inspiration.
Wishing you all a beautiful Friday and a wonderful weekend,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
