In Broken Places

In Broken Places by Michele Phoenix

About The Book:
Shelby’s life isn’t glamorous, but it is predictable - and that’s the way she likes it. A survivor of her father’s violence, she has spent a lifetime creating a safe existence devoid of dependence. But her carefully managed world begins to break when, under staggering circumstances, she becomes a single mother to four-year-old Shayla. In a drastic attempt to escape her childhood’s influence, Shelby moves to Germany, but she quickly discovers how intimately linked memory and healing are - and how honestly she must scrutinize her past in order to aspire to a richer future. As she juggles a new job, a new culture, a new daughter, and the attention of an enterprising man, Shelby’s fresh start becomes a quest for the courage to be not only a survivor, but someone who prevails.

My Thoughts:
This book was hard to put down! I love the storyline. It is not something you read about everyday. This book I think is about empowering women, and mother's, even though it is fiction. I cried while reading this book. I laughed. And I whooped for joy!
