Beth and Jay lead us through their lives as they explore the physical, sexual and emotional landscape of girlhood, adolescence, mothering, and womanhood, to rediscover within themselves the imaginative spirit of ‘the magnificent girl'.

Tyson-Doneley is a considerable writer, possessed of a sensibility which emphatically yet objectively registers the volatile emotional landscapes of childhood and adolescence while getting the sensuous detail just right. Veronica Kelly for The Review, Nov 1996

This new exciting work is an original poetical piece of female sexuality, rich is lyrical prose, promoting an exploration of one’s innermost feelings and an amusing, poignant observation of life. Terry C. Dunne for Brother Sister, Issue 83, Nov 1996
