Book Description

A lovely lilt of language slides between the horrendous and hilarious in these poems.
Readers of Where the Butterflies Go will already be expecting accomplished, fresh and lively work from Heather Grace Stewart, but even they will be surprised by the strength of this new collection, this genuine Leap, so direct, political and feminine by turns that it can take your breath away. A must for new and already hooked fans.
Heather Grace Stewart is an Ottawa-born author, poet, and photojournalist now living in Montreal.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

2012 update: My publishing company, Graceful Publications has started donating half the proceeds from sale of this book and of Leap to Hearts for Change, a small Canadian charity that's passionate about helping disadvantaged children around the world. Poetry doesn't make people millionaires, so I decided to do something worthwhile with the small amount of royalties these books received. I can't believe the small difference we've been able to make in just a few years. Since the paperback release of WTBG in 2008, through UNICEF and now Hearts for Change, we've been able to send five children to school and provide for their health and welfare, and we've helped countless others by donating pencils and books to entire schools. Thanks again for your help!

5.0 out of 5 stars Poems of Rare Beauty April 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Canadian poet, Heather Grace Stewart, writes lovely poems about modern life. Her poems have a rare beauty all while being sensual and wise. What I especially loved about this collection of poetry was the inclusion of her photographs. I also found many poems to love. I liked "Air" as it spoke of a beautiful comfort and "Paths" reminded me of what is important. Some of the poems speak of the realities of online life like tweeting and posting on facebook. A few poems have really beautiful endings and some of the poems represent very sensitive feelings. There is a pinch of politics, a dash of laughter and a cup of poignancy. I was pleased to read that half the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to UNICEF's Gift of Education Project. I think that is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leap May 27, 2012
Format:Paperback
I love this collection of poetry by Heather Grace Stewart. The poems, which vary in length and form, touch so many emotions. I laughed at the humour in "Honey-Do List "and enjoyed the number of poems based on social networking; I was moved by the poignancy of "Light Moments" and "Valley".
The poems that resonated strongly with me were the group which looked at motherhood/childhood. Although my children are adults, I'm revisiting many of these experiences with my young grandchildren - they are such precious times and Heather Grace Stewart has captured them in her poetry.
There are so many good things to discover in this collection, - far more than I've mentioned here. I know I shall return to them time and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A full range of human emotions June 6, 2010
Format:Paperback
Leap is the second compilation of Poetry by this talented Canadian. As with her first book "Where the Butterflies Go", She is able to take you on a journey of the emotions of life. She is able to see life more clearly that almost anyone I know. There are times she is able to see it through the eyes of her young daughter who happens to be on the book's cover. There are poems about Loss, Love and Life in general. There will be tears, there will be laughter and everything in between. Beautifully illustrated by Ms Grace Stewart's own Photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touched my Heart January 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
Heather put into words some of the feelings in my heart! Her visualizations were heartfelt and quite vivid. I enjoyed reading all these writings and they took me on an emotional journey that was a wonderful experience. It was easy to read on my phone in bits and pieces and I have since gone back and reread it multiple times, each time experiencing it again in a different way. Heather has put together a great collection and I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-own June 7, 2010
Format:Paperback
Heather Grace Stewart has outdone herself with this collection. These are modern poems for a modern world, full of humor, sincerity, moxie, and sensual beauty. The accompanying photographs add a sense of wonder and depth, and make you want to jump into every scene. Heather Grace Stewart has taken the Leap into greatness, and we cannot help but follow in her footsteps. A must-own for every woman (and man, too!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Leap (Heather Grace Stewart) May 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
Once again I was not disappointed in this collection of poems.
Ms. Stewart, writes with a passion pen bringing about emotions in each piece.
I would say a few that I really connected with were One Hand, Forever August & So Cool Networking. I recommend to poetry lovers, and those who may be curious about poetry; both Leap & Carry On Dancing by Heather Grace Stewart.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll Be Coming Back For More July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second poety collection of Stewart's that I have read. I enjoyed this one as much as the first and I will be grabbing her third, Carry on Dancing, soon.

I want to mention the images in the book first. They're awesome and she places them perfectly among the poems. The picture of the World Trade Center next to the poem, When Freedom Stands, caused a stir of patriotism and sadness inside me.

One thing that I enjoy about Heather's work is that is modern. She pokes fun at social networking and the addiction it causes. Five Thousand Friends is one example. Lolita touches on an aspect of the social world that I doubt few poets have touched before, if any.

Light Moments was my favorite poem of the collection. It made me think about how we celebrate the big moments, but it's the Light Moments that make a life.

Well done, Heather. Thanks again for sharing your writing.

More About the Author

Heather Grace Stewart is a Canadian magazine writer, author and poet. Her first poem was published in her school newsletter when she was five, and she's been hooked on writing ever since.

Heather's debut novel, Strangely, Incredibly Good, was released by Morning Rain Publishing on June 5, 2014. It has been reviewed as 'A Fun & Feisty Bridget Jones for the Digital Age,' 'Funny and Touching,' and 'If you like Sophie Kinsella, you'll love Heather Grace Stewart!"

Praised by Hollywood actors & producers as 'funny' 'clever' and 'innovative', Heather's screenplay THE FRIENDS I'VE NEVER MET is her best-selling Kindle book to date, reaching #28>Action & Adventure in Women's Bestselling Fiction in November 2013.

Reviewers call her work 'modern' and 'unconventional;' the writing 'tender' 'heartfelt' and 'vulnerable.' (Three Spaces, 2013) In January 2015, 'Three Spaces' hit #15 in Bestselling Contemporary Poetry on Kindle USA. Her third poetry collection, Carry On Dancing (Winter Goose Publishing, March 2012) was reviewed as 'brave, personal and eloquent poems.' These collections all charted on print and Kindle bestsellers lists in 'Poetry' and 'Canadian Poetry' in Canada, the US and the UK.

Heather is also the author of the Amazon Kindle best-selling poetry collections 'Leap' and 'Where the Butterflies Go,' two non-fiction books for youth, and a book of children's poetry, The Groovy Granny.

Born in Ottawa, she lives with her husband and daughter near Montreal.
In her free time, she loves to take photos, scrapbook, cartoon, inline skate, dance like nobody's watching, and eat Swedish Berries -- usually not at the same time.
