These poems raid borders of time and place through several centuries up to the present. Like geographical divisions, those between history and myth, despair and hope, possession and loss, are never fixed. From the borders of Northumbria there are forays into Scotland, Wales, southern England, Ireland, and beyond, which show people living with boundaries which they either dare to challenge or are unable to cross. Raiding the Borders is Robyn Bolam's second collection, published under her former married name of Marion Lomax. Her first book of poems, The Peepshow Girl (also published under the name of Marion Lomax), was warmly received. Peter Porter, writing in The Observer, admired the 'assurance and singularity' of her 'abiding and spiritual poetry'.
