Susie | 4488 comments I picked this book of poetry up and once I did I couldn't stop until I was done. I found them heartbreaking, beautiful, empowering, and insightful. The collection is broken in to four parts, each dealing with a different aspect of a relationship; The Hurting, The Breaking, The Loving, & The Healing. At times very simple but always poignant, I am so glad to have read them and I really look forward to reading The Sun and Her Flowers.

I have added this to the Social Issues folder as it covers Kaur's experiences with violence and abuse within her relationships, and it is undoubtedly a feminist work.

Anita Pomerantz | 6543 comments Oooh, I don't normally like poetry, other than Billy Collins, but your strong review makes me feel like this one might be worth the effort.


Susie | 4488 comments I hope you like the collection.

I just hope the library has it . . .my library is not the best, and I'm a little reluctant to purchase poetry until I've actually tried it out.


Susie | 4488 comments I wouldn't buy it. it's too short.
