It's the feelings of a girl who sells flowers in the kingdom often fantasizing about the prince of the kingdom. My review: Every feeling and the emotion of the girl is often described using the flower. Here, the poet's sense and sensibility towards the aesthetics of life is to be appreciated.  Each flower is described with a season and its fragrance attached to it. If there is one cover that portrays beautiful poetry it is this one, and it would be a massive understatement to say that I was captured by the cover of this book. Not only I was intrigued but also spellbound by what the cover was conveying to me.  Ballad of Love and Longing is another book of poems which I absolutely loved. The author’s penchant for words is clearly visible. In just a few words, it manages to impress, enchant and make the readers fall in love with the poems. My Rating: 5/5

    This was such a beautiful book! And definitely different form its peers. The entire book revolves around a girl that sells flowers and two kings. With medieval Europe as the background for the book, the poetess has beautifully described the girl’s feelings through flowers. I have honestly never seen such beautiful craftsmanship. The poetess has used flowers according to the seasons and that’s just beautiful.

The poems are simple, sweet and innocent and the cover of the book has the same vibe, it very plain and pure. You know you’re reading poems but the story that plays in your head is bound to keep you hooked to the book. I was surprised to be feeling things the author was trying to translate though a flower, I guess that’s the power of a good poetess. I definitely recommend.

    The way the whole story is written is amazing. The choice of words for the poems and the way the whole direction of the story is taken by the poems is amazing. As the name suggests it talks about the love and longings of a prince and the girl he falls in love with.

Though tragedy and heartbreak happens 2 times which change the course of novel but didn't fall flat because of its content. .

This is a result of the quality of the writing, but it's also how the author posits the events. It is a highly readable and accessible book that transports the reader to a very vividly realized fantasy world. I would give it 4.5/5 star.

    I have read lots of poetry book before also but I must say that this one is really unique. Here a whole story of a girl narrated in a form of poetry. It can make the readers go though their childhood days again where listening the fairy tales from the elders were the big sense of joy. I just loved the pictures added on the book.

    Divya Malhotra

    With the vibrant cover, the poetess has beautifully penned down her feelings not only in a form of poetry but , the feelings are expressed through flowers . Some poems doesn't need the exact rhyming scheme , in this collection the metaphor has worked powerfully as it compares the life story with the flower. Read something really different after a long time. Short and precise read won't take much time though.

    The book is very well written by the author who is so inspiring indeed. I was really very overwhelmed by reading the poems. The creativity and innovation that she has used is above imagination. I really felt the good connect with bringing the story and poem together. It is a must read for all.
