From My Heart For You by Monique Trowers is a poetry book that brings the themes of Christianity, faith, love, gratitude, inner conflicts, desires, regrets, forgiveness, and struggles. It’s noticeable that the writer built this novel with passion and sincerity since every composition inspires the reader to reflect on personal beliefs and everyday actions. These poems carry a motivational message of how to overcome difficulties, how to be a better person, and various other lessons.

The author also included a meditation section at the end of the book with thoughtful questions. The inquiries have scriptures to guide your thoughts and lines in blank to write down your answers. This part brings even more possibilities to study your daily progress and objectives. One of the questions that caught my attention and made me think for a long time was the one that inquired the reason why forgiving can be so complicated.

My favorite aspect of the book was the author’s style. Trowers uses rhymes and repetitions to create a calm and warm rhythm that fits the subject of the writings. For example, “Wall after wall, some very thick, some very tall/ You wonder if you’ll be able to break down all.” Even if most of the poems bring abstract or metaphorical ideas, it’s easy to recognize ordinary struggles that everybody comprehends in the verses, such as when the author talks about the effect of love in children’s lives.

There is nothing to dislike in this book. The composition also seems professionally edited and exceptionally well-written since I didn’t find a single error in my reading. Besides, the author plays with the words and sentences in order to give the poems more fluency and an innovative style. It’s a fascinating poetry book, and the writer composed it carefully with tenderness and devotion.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. Trowers wrote an intense and touching book with poems that evokes strong emotions according to personal life experiences. I recommend this book to people who are looking for an emotional and soulful poetry composition. Besides, this volume is better suited for Christians since most of the poems bring the aspects of faith, belief in God, and the Bible. However, since the writer also brings a lot of routine considerations, non-religious people might appreciate it too. Nevertheless, I don’t recommend this book to people who don’t enjoy poetry or heartfelt verses because they might find it uninteresting.

This book sounds interesting, but the religious themes seem excessive. I think I'll pass. Good review, Gabrielletiemi.
