Book Description 

Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

My Thoughts

Like I mentioned before, Milk and Honey is one of the best poetry books/poetry collections I have ever read.I was very impressed how such complex matters are beautifully written. 

Poetry with purpose, poetry to make conscience on everyday situations women have to deal with. Simple but powerful. A source of healing for every woman suffering violence, loss, pain, a heartbreak. I could not help but feel understood as to some of the experiences described in the lines of this book have happened to me or I have met other people going through it.

It is always comforting to find a book, an Author who can write with such honesty and who can relate to the people reading it.

I like how brutally honest the writing is, and also like how the illustrations help a lot to the message intended to be delivered. I like how through each of the four sections the book is divided we can see the different stages of the Author's mind and what she wants to transmit to the readers. 

Milk and Honey. Poetry for the Soul. A book I totally recommend.
