Something magical happens everytime I read a book by Lang Leav. Her words conjure sensations and memories long past or make current feelings that much deeper. Lang Leav knows love, it is her specialty. There is a wonderful harmony in her words. As I was reading there were moments when I found myself deep in reflection.

My favorite poem in Sea of Strangers is “Whole Again.” I found the wording of this beautiful poem calling out to me as I read it. Lang Leav writes “There is a word that hurts my heart-one I don’t ever say out loud. Like the shadow that lingers in the light, I can’t separate myself from your memory. But there are some nights when I look up at the sky and the moon is whole again.”

What the passage means to me could affect someone in a different way. This is where the author’s skills lie, in evoking a rainbow of responsiveness. I enjoy this side of her writing, how small poems can bring forth a slew of emotions, each unique. I would recommend adding Sea of Strangers to your collection. If you are a first-time reader, enjoy a book full of words that take you on a passionate journey from your past to your present.
