Dawn’s words are not only comforting to someone who is experiencing heartbreak, but also gives you this positive hope that everything will eventually be okay through TLC.

Review: Letting Go Is An Acquired Taste is a must read when you are going through a breakup. This poetry collection reminds you to let go of past lovers or of lovers who are not right for you and to move forward. Christina’s writing style is refreshing and is painfully relatable. Her words comfort you and remind you that you are not alone in suffering the aftermath of ending a relationship. Her positive uplifting words are reassuring and make you think about your own life. Though this is a short read, it’s worth it and you’ll be glad you picked it up.
