Book blurb:

You know her as a mother, daughter, sister, wife, daughter-in-law.
But seldom as a woman . . .
And maybe never as a human.
Get ready . . . it’s time to unlearn and learn.
A collection of musings that will have you reeling in a wave of emotion long after you are done reading, this powerhouse of work will make you smile, cry, go red in anger, nod your head in agreement and grasp the finer nuances of what it means to be her in today’s world.
A SMALL BOOK OF BIG LEARNINGS.

My Review:

Such is Her life by Reecha Agarwal Goyal is a book of short musings and quotes that’ll definitely give you goosebumps at some point or the other.
It talks about each phases of a woman and the hurdles she faces throughout her life.
The book doesn’t claims to have any long poetry rather it has some microtales or short stories carved beautifully in few lines.

The cover and title completely justifies the content. Honestly, I am a admirer of long literary works and poetries with opulent choice of words yet I completely adore this book of 170 miniscule which contains very few poetic terms because it has truly relevant contents with rollercoaster of emotions that’ll hit you to the core at many points.

//One fine day she stopped explaining.
Period.//

I’ve no idea if it lies under the modern poetry genre or not because as I asserted that it doesn’t claims to have poetries yet it now holds a special place on my shelf because the work is absolutely intriguing, heart-wrenching and heartwarming at the same time.

I’m giving this a 4.7 star ignoring some repetitive words and the fact that I’m a complex poetry lover just because it has hauntingly touched my heart with its absolute relevant lines.

//The day he saw her in an army uniform, his heart swelled with pride and tears rolled down his cheeks. “You are better than a son.” he said. She wept too. ‘Son’ was still the standard! //

Overall, this book is beautiful inside out and contains myriad of emotions of a woman’s life and her existence. Totally recommended to everyone out there but specifically to the people who love short quotes with easy read.

Thanks to the author for sending me the review copy.✨
