What mothers withhold is a book filled with beautiful poems written about what a mother goes through as a female. What their body, mind, soul, and transformation experiences is remarkable, and the journey that the author attempts to reflect in her poems is what we see here.
The poems also discuss matters of PTSD, medication, childbirth, and the voyage of motherhood. I appreciated how the author poured her heart out and embodied the poems with honesty and fairness.
The literature was not lyrical but instead was poetic and lovely to read. I appreciated how each poem was a continuation of the previous one. The outtake of the experience isn’t all joy and fun. Elizabeth does express hardship, trauma, and other forms of triumphs as well.
I particularly enjoyed the part where the author talks about her daughter. I thought the relationship and expressions of concern were all very relatable and true when you have a kid.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in poems and reading about motherhood.Tweet
