Quintessential Christine

By Christine Watts - ISBN: 9781922993427

RRP: $24.95

Christine’s words offer a truthful commentary about the beauty and relatability of everyday life for every person to enjoy...

Her family, friends and the everyday events of her life provide the quintessential material for her gloriously warm and fun collection of poems, which balances themes of eccentricity, playfulness, amusement and honesty as perfectly as her own smile.

Years prior, when invited to a dinner party, her husband was unable to make it. So, not being one to go alone, she created the perfect dinner partner in the form of a cardboard cut-out image of her husband to take as her date. This new husband became the often requested to attend guest at future parties…

Christine's active participation in World Nude Gardening Day each May of the year is often commented on by neighbours and friends who frequent her garden activities with admiration…

These are a few samples of Christine’s exceptions and happenings that are presented to the world in this excellent collection of works by a passionate and charismatic woman of the community.

“This is a wonderful book of prose, thoughts and experiences that will make you laugh and think all at once… Brilliant…” Helen, Indie Book reviewer
