The Plumb Line

Hélène’s collection ‘The Plumb Line’ takes us on a journey through childhood, motherhood, and her relationships with ageing and dying parents....

“Hélène Demetriades’ The Plumb Line is a magnificent, soaring testament to the tenacity of the human spirit. These are powerful, visionary poems, attentive to the body and the dark and tender places of the soul”.Fiona Benson
