My review

When the author contacted me and asked if I wanted to read and review her book, I have to admit it was not exactely in my confort zone. But I was intrigued by the blurb and the cover and I just had to give it a go.

And boy oh boy, I am so happy that I went for it. It is a vat filled with emotions. It is lovely and raw, heartbreaking and heartfelt. It is full of love and sadness, of hopes and dreams and of regret and disappointment.

She seems like a magician juggling with words to conjure metaphors and ending up with a beautiful story where love and pain were very palpable.

I am not a big fan of poetry because often I don’t quite know what they are talking about, but this author introduced me to a kind of poetry I understand and really and totally can appreciate. 5 stars.

Thank you, Rahf Alrashidi.
