My review for Poetry of the Heart and Soul by Sarah Northwood, 5/5 stars. It also earns a Pink Quill Book Pick badge (click here for more information.)
I never used to read much poetry, it wasn’t really my cup of tea. Until I met Sarah Northwood and discovered that poetry can reach inside you, to those emotions you keep hidden away, and touch your soul.
Her poems are thoughtful musings on everyday life, things that affect you but you can’t find the words to describe. They’re about family, security, and love, but also about feeling anger, hurt, and frustration. Reading her poems is like having a friend nearby who understands, listens, and puts their arms around you to console you.
Many of the poems are accompanied by a short explanation from the author, giving you an insight into the meaning behind her words, which I love, and there are gorgeous illustrations by the author throughout the book. This book of poetry is something to treasure, and read on days you need a quiet five minutes to yourself away from chaos of the world around you.
