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.
“I don’t think you need to be in love to write. But you had to have been once”
I’ve always found poetry collections so hard to review. Not because they failed in making me feel something, but rather their ability to make me connect with the words will have me at a loss in writing a proper review.
Sea of Strangers was such a pleasure to read. The last poetry collection by Lang Leav I read was Lullabies, which was too depressing that I chose not to read The Universe of Us and Memories. But I’m glad I got the chance to try her newest collection of poetry. Sea of Strangers has the perfect mix of empowerment, first feelings of love, and the inevitable conundrum of having your heart broken leaving you empty. But Sea of Strangers isn’t as heavy as I thought it would be.
Perfect for a quick read over the weekend, it’ll bring you to sweet memories of true love and what it means to love yourself and all of your being.
I found it was such a nice change from the previous materials by Lang Leav that I’ve tried. Sea of Strangers takes us on a journey to appreciate words more than ever. I’ve dog-eared so many pages and even wrote annotations at the sides for poems that reminded me of my past feelings.
“I wondered who they were and what destiny had in store for them. Will they remain strangers or become friends – perhaps even lovers?”
Overall, a great poetry collection to have on your shelf. I absolutely adored it and highly recommend Sea of Strangers!
