Skilfully crafted, poignant and memorable

-Natalie Scott


The Ridings, from the Old Norse Þriding or Þriðing: a thirding


In this beautiful, evocative collection, poet Emma Conally-Barklem reflects on the county of Yorkshire and its three ridings, conveying the everyday happenings of its towns, villages and cities against a wider societal context with the Moors and countryside acting as a bas-relief. Broadly autobiographical, it is couched in the writer’s own working-class background and holds grief, identity and human connection at its heart.


Leaves you wanting to hold the book tightly, close to your own heart.
