A selection of kind words:-

I came with my grown up daughter, having given her the weekend as a birthday present, and we were both captivated all weekend. These ancient stories had contemporary relevance. They were well told in a convivial atmosphere. We both came away nourished in the deepest sense of the word.

Listening to the winding tales of Shonaleigh telling the tales of long past generations of women is a journey of the soul …. I felt transported to a time between worlds – where so many craftsfolk have traveled under the direction of a master story-teller“.
