This debut collection of poetry explores the threads and gaps in family and national story -- both oral and archival -- to connect multiple generations of migration, separation, adoption, secrecy and reunion. The poems connect seemingly distant times and places -- from slave plantations in North America, to the rookeries of London, a bend in the Nepean River and a street corner in The Rocks -- and pay homage to other poets communing with 'archival women', including Jeanine Leanne, Natalie Harkin, Elfie Shiosaki and M. NourbeSe Philip.
