By Rachel Thompson
Award-winning author Rachel Thompson courageously confronts the topics of sexual abuse and suicide, love and healing, in her second nonfiction book of prose: Broken Places. The sequel to Rachel's first nonfiction book, Broken Pieces, Rachel bares her soul in essays, poems and prose, addressing life's most difficult topics with honesty. As you follow one woman's journey through the dark and into the light, you will find yourself forever changed. Rachel's first book in this series, Broken Pieces, has been a #1 best seller on Amazon (eBooks) on Women's Poetry and Abuse. Please note: this book discusses serious topics, and is intended for mature audiences only.
It was sad to read the abuse that Rachel endured but I can see how other survivors could relate to this book. I admire the author for sharing herself and her abuse because it's subject matter that is considered taboo and swept under the rug. But if we aren't talking about it, we aren't helping the innocent people being abused. Rachel Thompson is a talented writer. 5 stars.
