Synopsis: 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.

I am so mad at myself that it took me this long to pick up MILK AND HONEY; no this is a lie. I picked it up plenty of times, but for some reasons I didn’t read it. I am not usually a poetry fan, and when I do read poetry, I am very picky. Rupi Kaur has created a beautiful collection of poetry that is relatable for any woman. She writes about women empowerment and the everyday struggles that all women can relate to; including heart break, harassment, loss, happiness, and the list goes on and on.
You can tell that Kaur has poured her heart and soul into these words, which makes the poetry all the more enjoyable. Mix this with the high ability to related to her words and this book was guaranteed as an instant best seller for women all over the world. I have already bought 2 more copies to give as gifts.
I received the special edition cloth hardcover bound copy for the holidays and it is a beautiful addition to my book collection. Next on my poetry to read list: THE SUN AND HER FLOWERS; the sequel to MILK AND HONEY.
