“Grayhurst is a great Canadian poet.
.
All of Allison Grayhurst’s poetry
.
is original, sometimes startling, and
.
more often than not, powerful.
.
Anyone who loves modern poetry
.
that does not follow the common path
.
will find Grayhurst complex, insightful,
.
and as good a poet as anyone writing
.
in the world today. This, and other Grayhurst 
.
poetry volumes are highly, highly recommended,” 
.
Tom Davispoet, novelist and educator.

“’The Many Lights of Eden’ is a journey: a journey

of the heart through youth, anguish, struggle,

spiritual awakening, grief, death, love, loss,

guilt, struggle, despair, hope, surrender, God,  

sensuality, imperfection, motherhood, aging,

the vanquishing of the devil, indeed, many devils,

the inevitable fall from perfection and the casting

off of old wineskins for a new one. Perhaps

speaking of this book as a chronicle of spiritual 

maturing would be more accurate, the realization

that there is spirituality within imperfection and that handmade temples

cannot hope to compete with the spiritual temples within each of us.

‘The Many Lights of Eden’ is a diamond. It is a beautiful collection

of insights. Allison Grayhurst’s thoughts and writings are a deep well.

Drink from it, for the water is clear and crisp. This collection is

a MUST-READ,” Eric M. Vogt, author of  Letters to Lara and 

Paths and Pools to Ponder
