#blurb: A deluge of poetry and prose, ambiguously honouring the essence of existence from birth onto death, life and loss, self and society, romantic love and pensive longing, melancholy of regret to gratitude in healing, and the struggles of and strength in femininity. A potpourri of musings assembled with a hint of practical spirituality, to be savoured passably as an oracle of hearts to the many answers, whose questions our minds are yet to comprehend. Ivory Gleam is split into three chapters of learning, longing and loving. Each chapter is a journey traversing a different road to the ultimate destination of self-reflection.

My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
The book is a beautiful collection of prose and poetry which touches various facets of life. Each poem conveys a deep emotion which doesn’t fail to touch your hurt. The writing style is pleasing and captivating. The topics range from love to betrayal, self-harm to child abuse and freedom to toxicity. The author has put forward both the positive and negative side of the society through this anthology. The words which people need to hear to awaken their inner self has been beautifully portrayed. Also the emotions from which we tend to run away have been spoken aloud through this compilation. The way she has weaved her words to express her thoughts is enthralling. Every page has a charm to it and makes you feel connected. It helps you assess yourself and strengthen self awareness. It helps you in personal growth and motivates to preach self love. Most of us have gone through the various feelings and emotions described in the book at some point or the other which makes us feel more connected to the writing. The book is divided into three chapters where each talks about a different about a different subject i.e, learning, longing and love. Overall it was a fascinating read and also the cover of the book is so serene and aesthetic.
