So I’m in a poetry mood lately but I’m still trying to find what I like and don’t like.

This collection was a mix of poems I enjoyed and poems that I didn’t enjoy, and I actually took the time out of my reading to highlight some of my favourites. There were poems about mothers that really resonated with me, as they seemed to feature love and loss in balance – and as someone who has lost their mother, they just really hit close to home.

Other poems i found dragged quite a bit and i ost interest in

This is one of the few books (poetry or otherwise) in which I have left bookmarks on my e-reader to look at every now and then.

The poems are heartfelt, sometimes gritty, and they hit home with me every single one of them. Baker is an artist with words.

I received a free copy through Netgalley, in return for an honest review.

This collection of poems can be relatable to so many people in the world. It is about people finding themselves and who they are. Finding thier self worth and moving forward no matter what or who stands in thier way. The poems have pain, you can actually imagine what these people are going through, but it also have hope and faith as they get through their problems, and strength to keep fighting on. They are survivors and fighters. These poems are an inspiration to so many people, myself included ...more

This is an absolutely wonderful book of poetry. The author really shares from her heart. Some of these poems are heart-wrenching and I felt a pull toward the author as she shared such heartfelt poems. These will grab and tug at your heart strings. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this author. Excellent book and it gets 5***** from me.

Wow! The author's words dominate the pages of this book and provide intellectual unadulterated views of the world directly from her heart. This is not your normal book of poems, it is life's perspective that leaves you thinking long after reading the final page. (less)
