This book of poetry was absolutely beautiful. Stacy Kestwick so eloquently pinpointed the dark, hollow lows of heartbreak and the bright, euphoric highs of healing and finding love again. I loved the illustrations, they were a sweet touch.

As I've mentioned in my past poetry reads, I share these with my mother each morning. I read 3-4 poems and send them to her via text, and then we discuss. It's a tradition we have that we both cherish, and my mom said several times that the author in this one

This book will resonate with anyone who has ever felt ‘less than’ someone else. From the first words, it’s obvious that the writer has had her heart broken, but is now on a journey to become all she is meant to be. It feels authentic and hopeful, but real and heartbreaking at times as well. This isn’t a typical book of poetry, but rather an outpouring of hurt, anger, and frustration that turns into strength and something beautiful! I will be reading more from this author.

There was something so powerful in the way Stacy Kestwick poured her heart into this book. The words punched me right in the chest.

The Light, the Dark and the In Between showcases the power and pain and everything that comes with loving someone. And leaning to love again when your heart has been broken. As much as I wanted to devour every page, I took my time, and let this beauty soak right into my soul.

Raw and Real

From the first page, this book touched my soul. It was like holding a mirror in front of my face. So raw and real. I felt her pain, healing, and transformation. She gave me hope that we all can heal and love again. Anyone who has been hurt in a relationship can identify with her words. I felt a sense of sisterhood reading her words. It was comforting to know I was not alone in my journey. Definitely a book I will read over and over.

I rarely read poetry but this was absolutely beautiful and emotional. It was raw and real. A power of self- discovery. It gave me hope of healing, finding love again, belief in myself.

Kestwick sums up beautifully the transition from loss and heartbreak to healing, re-defining yourself and ultimately finding hope and love once again.
