Today’s Sunday Book Review is on Balroop Singh’s – Emerging from Shadows. In this book, Balroop takes us on a journey into ourselves. Balroop’s writing is deep and compassionate, and as all of her books and writing do, this one will help to awaken our senses, our feelings and help to uplift our inner spirits.
From darkness into light, from despair onto the wider ways of hope…life oscillates between sunshine and shadows. Emerging from shadows is a choice, which lies dormant, which can be gently inspired by self-talk. Each poem in this book banks on the hope of emerging stronger, saner, positive and resilient. Each poem in this book would talk to you, revealing layers of enclosed emotions. Each poem would divulge a secret path that could lead you into the world of poise and serenity.
When turbulences hit, when shadows of life darken, when they come like unseen robbers, with muffled exterior, when they threaten to shatter your dreams, it is better to break free rather than get sucked by the vortex of emotions.
My 5 Star Review:
This is the second book I’ve read from Singh and I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading inspirational poetry. Singh’s messages in her writing encompass self-worth, hurts, tribulations, and words of encouragement, reminding us we can overcome these by self-empowerment. All her messages finish with hope. Beautifully written with exquisite prose, this book was a delight to read and the passages are timeless, making it a book you can go back to for a bit of soul-searching when the need arises.
