Kaur connects herself to the reader through the intimate verses, adding a delicate touch to the rough edges of painful memories. Milk and Honey is a short read that can be visited again and again for deep reflection and self-examination.
Reflections on the self and the past flow with the gorgeous poems in Milk and Honey. Explorations of love, loss, trauma, self-doubt, and other challenges for young women are presented for the readers to consider.
