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.

“Sweta has got your writer’s back. In this wonderful, honest, and brave book of essays, you will encounter wisdom and insights to deepen your writing journey. An enlightening and invaluable source for writers and creatives alike.” ~ Barbara Bos, Managing Editor, Women Writers, Women’s Books

A Piece of Peace, above all, is a deep dive into the power and meaning of vulnerability when it comes to engaging in authentic healing work.  Healing takes risk, the risk to expose one’s self to the uncontrollable creativity life has to offer by shedding the layers of protection that we build through our lives.  Mrs. Vikram’s willingness to share her life in order to bring this process to the light is a testament to her commitment to the essence of what Ayurveda describes as the root cause of all disease – the separation from Spirit.  It helps to relate, on a very human level, to others who have suffered through what often feels like a lonely road.  Mrs. Vikram offers precious companionship with her words and experiences.  Keep a Piece of Peace close to your heart, like a dear friend, as you heal.” ~ Victor Briere, Ayurvedic Doctor

“Sweta has very ingeniously used the creative art of writing as the vehicle to dialogue with us about life.  As a well-established author, it comes as no surprise that this book is brilliant on so many levels.  Sweta brings us into her life beautifully and candidly, sharing with us her insights on healing, writing, and living with a chronic illness that nearly took her life.  A Piece of Peace is a book for everyone – to read, to be treasured and to keep nearby.  It will serve you well time and again when hope is not to be found or when encouragement is needed or when a solid dose of wisdom is all you need to get up and get going again.” ~ Abby, Abhaya Geyer, Advertising Manager: Yoga Therapy Today & International Journal of Yoga Therapists

“Inspirational, compassionate and honest, each essay in A Piece of Peace is filled with wisdom for writers and other creatives. In charting her journey through a devastating health crisis and living with chronic illness, Sweta Vikram offers practical tips for mindfulness, healthy living and personal growth that are easy to dip in and out of and apply. Written with warmth and vulnerability, this book is both a heartfelt account of the importance of self-care and self-empathy to wellness, as well as an essential tool kit to help us better nurture our bodies and creative souls.” ~ Jen Gilroy, Author

“Refreshing and real, A Piece of Peace is a meditation of one woman’s journey through illness and recovery, stillness and discovery. Finding abundance and positivity even in the face of hardship, Sweta Srivastava Vikram offers her wisdom to all who seek to live their best and most creative lives.” ~ Jennifer Klepper, USA Today Bestselling Author of Unbroken Threads

“What did Sweta Vikram do after a miraculous recovery from near-death? She wrote this healing guide to long-term health for your creative mind, body and soul. Linger a while with her book and let your body unwind and find peace of mind – the keys to setting your creative soul free.” ~ Cauvery Madhavan, Author of The Tainted

A Piece of Peace is a pleasure to read. It is a great combination of personal experience and street-smart advice including some very potent lifestyle changes. The author draws upon diverse scenarios and situations and has a wonderful ability to connect everything with a common thread, so the continuity is seamless. What is also visible is vulnerability and deep inner strength. It then segues into very practical tips to stay healthy, physically and mentally, during the pandemic and culminates in sage advice to authors. I would highly recommend this book to people from all walks of life, and I’m confident that it will prove to be of immense benefit to anyone interested in achieving a state of healthy physical, intellectual, and spiritual well-being.” ~ Nitin P. Ron, MD, Speaker, Expedition Leader, and Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics
