The Light of Love is the third book in the Twelve Poems to Inspire Gift Book series, a gift-book range for festivals like Mother’s Day and Christmas, as well as milestones like loss and new beginnings. The Light of Love celebrates Valentine’s Day—and love in all its forms. These twelve poems delve into all aspects of love—euphoria, contentment and the moments that test us—while encouraging us to celebrate the full spectrum of life’s emotions through a lens of love. In accessible, conversational, language the poet draws from her own marriage, friendships and family life, to reflect on love not just as collaborative emotion but one we should also direct towards ourselves. Strikingly real, with powerful candor and passion, the book contains three sections, Heartbreak and Heartease, and each poem is illustrated by pictures the poet co-created with the AI art app, Dream. A thoughtful gift for lovers on Valentine’s Day—or for a loved one any day of the year.
