Milk and honey’ is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split 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 wish I had read this sooner, but I know these words came into my life right when I needed them most. These poems of love and breaking and healing filled my soul and brought tears to my eyes. This collection is a love letter to women, their bodies, and the amazing things that happen when we seek love from within instead of validation from others.
