In poems ranging from the molten to the lyrical, Christchurch writer Jane Simpson takes the reader on an unusual journey, from the death of a major perpetrator in the Anglican Church to love poems to all women who have been sexually abused.

With an historian’s eye she draws on evidence in witness statements to create poems that speak with unexpected power. Poetry, history and feminist theology are brought together, as never before. Faith is not deflowered by sexual violence, but redefined by women survivors, shaking the apple tree.
