Canada's 150 Year Anniversary




Praise for Hallmark . . .

"As St Clare was a light in her century, we pray the same for Emily as her poetic talent

illumines our century and anniversary year." 

--Sister Claire Marie Blondin, osc

    Monastery of St. Clare in Mission, B.C.

Praise for The Fleur-de-lis . . .

Attempting to pen a few comments on Emily Isaacson’s new work is like a caveman with a chisel and stone trying to capture a resplendent, golden sunset.  Emily is a painter, a sculptor, a ballerina with words.  Her creation is to be savoured and sipped slowly on a grassy knoll, not swallowed hurriedly.  Let the reader dance with the poet as she takes one into times past, or to enjoy nature with new eyes, or to be drawn closer to the Creator – in English or in French. The Fleur-de-lis is a delight.

--Marc Dalton, former MLA for Mission B.C.

Praise for The Blossom Jar . . .

The Blossom Jar touches on the fact that even though others may live differently than us; all behaviour makes sense, although we may not condone or understand it. Acceptance and compassion go a long way to understanding someone's story. 

--Lexi Richards, director of Community Kitchens in Mission, B.C.

Praise for Victoriana . . .

Victoriana draws you into the majesty of the past and gives hope for the future.

--Brian Headley, director of the Listening Prayer Community in Mission, B.C.
