Sea of Strangers by Lang Leav picks up from her previous international bestselling books including Love & Misadventure, Lullabies, and The Universe of Us, and sets sail for a grand new adventure.
This completely original collection of poetry and prose will not only delight her avid fans but is sure to capture the imagination of a whole new audience. With the turn of every page, Sea of Strangers invites you to go beyond love and loss to explore themes of self-discovery and empowerment as you navigate your way around the human heart.
There is a stirring in my soul, a restless, wild anticipation. I am staring out into the horizon, as far as I can. I can’t see what’s beyond it, but I can feel it.
I adore Lang Leav. I have been a fan of her work for many years, and have read every one of her books (many of them more than once), and each time I finish one, I am left feeling a whirl wind of emotions. No matter how many times I read her poetry, I am always left in awe by her writing. Something about her writing is so serene and her words flow together beautifully.
So much of what she writes deeply resonates with me, and I often find myself thinking back on her words when I am going through a difficult time. Her poetry is such a comfort to me, and I am endlessly grateful for the existence of her poems. Even though all of her poetry in collections are similar in nature, I still find each one to be unique and beautiful in its own way.
I actually got my hands on an early copy of Sea of Strangers, but it wasn’t until recently that I finally picked it up and read it. I now realize that I was meant to wait to read it, as I am currently going through a difficult time, and once again, Lang Leav provided me the exact comfort that I am desperately in need of.
Sea of Strangers is an emotionally beautiful and empowering collection of prose and poetry about love, loss, healing, and self-discovery. This collection was incredibly moving, and I definitely had tears in my eyes when I read some of the poems.
I highly recommend this book (along with all of her other books if you have not yet read them!), especially to anybody that is going through a tough time and is in need of healing.
Lang Leav is truly a gift to the poetry world, and I am impatiently awaiting the release of her next book!
