"Milk and Honey" tells the story of the author's journey through "love, loss, trauma, abuse, healing and femininity". The stories told in each line of this book bring a sense of understanding to the harsh realities women face in today's society. Each chapter covers topics that depend on the other: the Hurting, the Loving, the Breaking and the Healing. "Other women's bodies / Are not our battlegrounds" from "the Healing" speaks about the process of growing to love not only yourself, but those around you. I enjoyed this book because of my ability to relate to it. Most books you'd come across are poems about fantasy lives, and Romeo and Juliet. This book is perfect for anyone looking to enlighten themselves in the world around them, or for those looking to heal through art. Similar titles include: "The Sun and Her Flowers" and "Homebody" by Rupi Kaur, "Pillow Thoughts" by Courtney Peppernell, and "The Witch Doesn't Burn in this One" by Amanda Lovelace. - Sybille
