Trail of Broken Wings reveals the burden of shame and secrets, the toxicity of cruelty and aggression, and the exquisite, liberating power of speaking and owning truth.

I found myself lost in this book for a number of reasons, you will as well with all certainty.

A convoluted story of harbored dark secrets tucked away forever plaguing a family and each individual member. Healing is examined in an intricate and involved manner accompanied with high emotions and stress. Unearthing buried secrets takes its toll as we discover in this broken family. The ravages of abuse, its aftermath expertly depicted.

“What he did to you can never be undone. But don’t let it color your life. Don’t let his actions or his way of living become your truth.”

A disturbing story, incandescent, engrossing. A combination of strong characterization, a well crafted narrative complete with a somewhat jaw dropper ending causing an audible gasp makes for an enthralling painful read. As a survivor of abuse I was greatly affected by this story as well as its cast.

“Everyone must reach a point in their life when they stop running. When it is easier to stand still than to keep being chased, even if the person chasing you is only in your head.”

Trust, heavy questions, vague answers, strength, forgiveness, healing, will leave you lost in thought. A stirring memorable read.

“I wait for the pity, the disgust, all the things that come with someone knowing you are damaged. The acceptance that the scars that cover your body and soul have shriveled you to nothing but a fragment of what you once were.”
