Reviews

Lunar Tides, Shannon Webb-Campbell exposes a heart that's broken but also carried across the gulf between the moon and the sea, a heart that knows how grief takes up with the body. She shows us that grief is tidal, its ebb and flow pulsing like the moon and dog-earring our memories. This book reminds us that, grieving or not, we need to be held by something other than a theory. --Douglas Walbourne-Gough, author of Crow Gulch


There is an arc of light in Shannon Webb-Campbell's Lunar Tides that passes through a mother's death, a poet's birth, and the moon in orbit over the Atlantic. These are poetics of nature told from the lip of Eastern Canada where a desire to know reveals a desire to remember. 'Life becomes a quest of origin, ' the poet tells us. And in this way, we are shown how even grief can be transformed.; --Tawhida Tanya Evanson, author of Book of Wings


Lunar Tides is both expansive and exacting, inviting us to feel our own relationship to the ocean, belonging and mortality. --Shalan Joudry, author of Walking Ground
