Praise for Petals of Vision
"Deeply felt poetry in wide variety of forms . . . sonnets that chart the highs and lows of human love. They are 'petals of grace' that 'spread blessing unseen by the wider world'" - Reverend Malcolm Guite, Ph.D., Chaplain/Supervisor at Girton College, Cambridge University.
"In this wonderful second collection of poems, Villiers again sings the universe into rhyme and weaves nature with religious allusion in tales of love's loss and gain" - Gerard Loughlin, Ph.D., Professor of Theology and Religion, Durham University.
"Wonderful collection with a rich variety of subject matter. The poems on love lost and/or betrayed come straight from the heart, while the humorous verses show a mastery of subtle wordplay. Villiers is a poet with a soul, a conscience, and a distinctive poetic voice. Highly recommended" - 5* review, Amazon
