A Piece of Peace by Sweta Vikram is a work of power.
How can so much be packed into one small book? This is an autobiographical account of one unique woman’s struggle with near-fatal disease. It is a rejection of discrimination and exploitation, of women in particular. It is the reaching out of a helping hand to other writers, creative professionals, and anyone else who needs a reminder about the role of wellness in their lives. Above all, it is as the title states, a path to inner peace and personal power.

“In A Piece of Peace, Sweta Vikram departs from poetry and fiction to share with readers the roadmap and tools she used to reclaim meaning and quality of life as she dealt with severe and chronic illness and a near-death experience. Beginning with excerpts from the journal she kept during her illness, she adds self-reflection, anecdotes, snippets, observation and advice to describe her approach. “Pain has been my greatest teacher,” she writes. She learns to adjust her expectations of herself and others, to be kind to herself, and build the best life for herself that she possibly can. She skillfully describes the power of her tools: writing (no surprise!), gratitude, positivity, forgiveness, yoga, mindfulness, meditation and Ayurveda. Whether you are well or ill, A Piece of Peace has something for your own quality of life toolbox as well.” ~ Mukund Acharya, Health & Wellbeing columnist, India Currents

“A Piece of Peace by Sweta Vikram is the book every woman needs to have by her bedside. Each chapter is a little piece of magic that is easy to digest after a long day. We can see ourselves in her stories and also gain greater insights into the expectations about a woman’s role in our dysfunctional society. She guides us with ease from the lows of experiencing health problems, writer’s block and pandemic survival to the highs of loving deeply and stepping into our own power and spirituality. When times are hard, we just need to know that other women feel the same, as a form of self-empathy. I think every woman will see herself in this book and be glad to have read each juicy page.” ~ Amy Wheeler, Director of Training at Optimal State Yoga Therapy School & Former President of the Board of Directors at International Association of Yoga Therapists
“A Piece of Peace is a chronicle of events related to Vikram’s illness and her triumphant return to life. She shares lessons learned on her way to recovery and imparts valuable advice to her readers that can be both life-changing and lifesaving. Her story demonstrates the victory of valiance over despair. This is a timely read, especially, because many of us are in low spirits due to the Coronavirus.” ~ The Think Club, reviewed by Anil Shrivastava ‘Musafir’
