If There Were Roads

By (author): Joanna Lilley

Guided by the geography of land and mind, the familiar and the unknown converge in If There Were Roads by Joanna Lilley. A family shattered by a phone call, a monk who becomes a hermit, and a woman adjusting to living on the edge of the boreal forest, each finding their future from the experiences of their past. Pulled like the tide between the sea and the shore, If There Were Roads drives toward new vistas while reflecting on what has been lost in the process of moving forward. Lilley’s poems explore the paths we take from here to there when there are no roads to guide us.
