Sonnets & Secrets

Regular price £9.99

Jessie Nicol was born in Sullom, Shetland, in 1924. She first attended the Bressay school and for a short time the Sullom school before finishing her education at the Lerwick Central Public School. Following an accident in 1994, which impaired her mobility, Jessie was obliged to give up her favourite hobby of painting. She turned to writing short stories and poetry, favouring the sonnet form. Much of her writing has been published in the popular local magazine Shetland Life over the years. This collection pulls most of these short stories and poetry into a single publication which is sure to be popular among readers old and new
