Broken Pieces by Judith B. Pinkard is her debut novel which is a biographical story that is heartbreaking and thought provoking. This is her journey as she sees it and what her family went through. Judith is honest in her telling and leaves nothing unsaid and it is brave of her to share it with us. It is almost clinical in the way it is written as if it is someone on the outside looking in but it packs a very emotional punch.
Judith was considered a miracle baby her parents were so happy and in love until a horrific tragedy left them all broken in one way or another. It is full of pain and suffering, turmoil and insecurities as they try to find their way back to a new ‘normal’.
Broken Pieces is a very apt name for this story.
