From Now til Then
This poetry anthology is for anyone who has been in love or would like to be, and has discovered the joy of passion.
The power of love spans the centuries. The haunting poem, Elizabeth and Robert Dudley, explores the memories which linger at Kenilworth castle from the medieval season when these two famous lovers walked there.
Curves in the Sand recalls Nefertiti’s love for her Pharoah Akhenaten, and When the Gods Smile Again takes us to ancient Atlantis; whilst Maisie, a contemporary homeless woman, feels passionate about the sparkle of diamonds.
The love of nature and religious belief is in The distance from Durrington to Stonehenge. We experience the romance, and magic of Venice; the light heartedness of the Fallen Angel.
There’s darkness too in Woman, the Enchantress, and so much more.
The love we have in our hearts will endure… From Now ‘til Then..
Reader Reviews For From Now til Then
Everyone should read it. By Rosemary Smith
I loved every poem in this book. Obviously written by a lady who understands the concept of love.
The descriptive words are stunning, and the poetry takes the reader on a journey through the various aspects of love.
Everyone should read it. But I especially recommend it for those who are in love. With Valentines Day on the horizon, this would be a wonderful present for someone. Enjoy!!!!
Love resonates through time. By Catherine Sutton
‘From Now ‘til Then’ is an Anthology of Love Poems. I would recommend this little book without hesitation. The line from ‘Til Then’ sums up these poems: ‘Hand in hand, across the edge of time…’ Love permeates Sharon Bradshaw’s words, travelling through history, from Camelot, to the Tudor Court into the present. Her understanding of the past shines through together with the many faces of love. I have returned many times to ‘The Distance from Durrington to Stonehenge;’ such wonderful use of language.
I came to Sharon Bradshaw’s work through her novel ‘The Monk who Cast a Spell’. She very kindly sent me a copy of ‘From Now ‘til Then’ in exchange for an honest opinion. I read all the time, but I have always struggled with reading poems, often finding it hard to settle to the rhythm of the words, but Sharon Bradshaw’s poems are a joy to read with so much to think about, words and phrases to savour and enjoy.
A great book to dip into. By Allison Symes
I don’t read a lot of poetry but I do know what I like when I come across it. I like Sharon Bradshaw’s collection a lot. The poems vary in length and are all on the theme of love. My favourite is Elizabeth and Robert Dudley, partly because I love that era of history anyway (so bias would be bound to creep in!) and also because there is a poignancy to this poem I didn’t expect. I liked that. I thought this was a good collection for people like myself who are relatively new to poetry and recommend it both for reading straight through but also as a great book to dip into.
