About Book

‘Love settled on the smile across the room
And said: This is she. You shall cherish her
All your years: her radiance today,
Her beauty in the middle passage, her loveliness
In age. She is yours to keep and hold.'

In Love Poems for My Wife, Victoria, George Hobson allows us into the intimate world of his God-given love for his wife. He takes us on a journey through the lifetime of their love from when they met, through many snapshots of their experiences to Victoria's illness and his heartbreaking hope and prayers to the Lord. We get a sense of her goodness, compassion and love of life as well as the strength of their love and togetherness which has deepened with time and knowledge, all portrayed through his intense and powerful imagery.
