The characters within the pages of this work are many, ranging from others and herself to nature and honor. Each piece within this work stands strongly of its own volition and expounds the undeniable power and ember of the human spirit. The collection stands as a testament to the spark of life and indomitable spirit within all beings.
It is not the atmosphere in which Madhavi Sood wrote this anthology that is important. The importance of the collective work lies within the poet's verses themselves. Each turn of phrase breeds new connections, in the reader's mind, that cross the distance, be it physical or emotional, between the inhabitants of this planet. One cannot peruse the pages without feeling the link being reinforced.
In reading the author's poetry, one is taken through the experiences of a path well traveled and uplifted by engrossing visions of everyday life. A line from one of the poems within this collection, Beyond the Horizon, reads: "Yet beyond the horizon lies treasure rare...", and indeed for the reader that chooses to experience this anthology, there is just that.
