The Gift of Life, What Price Life:
“Yvonne's delightful poems sing with rhyming-word music and comforting hope-filled examples of our Nature's world. Young and old, we 'thinking creatures' search for loving answers to fill our endless questions; why? how? when? where? and more deeply who? Yvonne's rich and true thankful praise for our spirit-centred world enriches all her readers.
She is a UK poet to be savoured often and treasured by all generations.
Yvonne is a loving antidote to our angry, speeding world.”

Thank you for exquisitely presented and beautifully written 'The Gift of Life'. As you know, I am facing challenges which at time are difficult to bear. Your poems are so comforting and uplifting and are already helping. My younger son and I read them aloud when he visits so we are both enjoying them."
"It never ceases to amaze me to see how much you achieve in such difficult circumstances."
“Another Day Another Dream … What an absolutely dreamy poem.
This is fantastic writing … I love every image;
I will extol it's virtues later, but, I wanted to say …what a very talented poet you are my friend.
This is real treasure …. as are you!”

"Thank you for your bereavement book 'Loved Ones'. I must admit, I first read your poems out of courtesy to a friend, but your writings quickly caught my attention. Some gave me goose bumps as I read them. They expressed my thoughts succinctly yet eloquently. Three poems; 'Deeper than Life' , 'Loved Ones' and 'Wise are the ways of God' stand out for me. In fact, I have asked my Wife to read 'Deeper than Love' at my funeral. Yvonne, let me encourage you to publish this work and to continue to write poems. I really enjoyed your differing styles, rhyme, rhythms and mostly your thoughts"
(Headmaster - Australia)
"I really enjoyed reading "Flames of Remembrance" I hope this poppy card is a fitting reminder of 'Father, uncle, brother, lover, son' who gave so much for our peace and freedom. Thank you"
"You are so talented ... you must be so proud every time you see your words in print. It has lovely photo's and I look forward to dipping in!"

“Seeking perfection is an attribute of a positive mind, and vice versa.
They compliment each other … and there is so much to be optimistic about!
You are so blessed with beauty at your finger tips. That is part of your divine nature and gift.
In our pre-earth life when we lived with our heavenly father … you probably charmed and inspired many of us with your talents. No doubt, even back then, I was one of your biggest followers!”

“Thank you for allowing me to share your book of wonderfully comforting verse.
The piece that I found most inspirational is 'Deeper than Life'
It makes me smile when I realise the love I have for my son will always be with me; and now …
I know that he will always be with me … I can see that now!”
The Gift of Life, What Price Life and Loved Ones:
“These poetry books are absolutely exquisite!

Thank you Yvonne, you are so very talented.”
