Rupi Kaur

milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival, the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss and femininity.

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain and 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. (From Simon & Schuster)
