Author Mona Khalil offers a collection of reflective poetry rooted in love and telling the story of her life, from childhood through present day. I Write Letters in my Thoughts is a synoptic view into one person's journey through love, life, and ultimately towards liberation. This book is a testament to the power of storytelling as a historic healing method for communities who are often told to be quiet and patient. I Write Letters in my Thoughts allows us to realize that we are enough and that enough is enough; suffering is not our destiny, love is not impossible, and freedom is what we make it.
Mona's voice brings stories to life in a way that transfixes the listener. As you root for Mona and root against those who would hurt her, you may find as I did that certain messages resonate so clearly that you want to hold onto a line, relisten to it, and let it sink in once again.
