Description of Broken Pieces by Danny Woodall
Angie Larson is raised by seemingly faithful Christian parents. But after her father begins abusing her, Angie asks her mother to divorce him. When her mom refuses, Angie is forced to suppress her memories and go on with her life.
During high school she dates a young man from church. They marry and are happy, but it doesn’t take long for her to realize she can’t escape her dad. Holidays, birthdays, and surprise visits from her parents only give her dad a chance to continue his verbal abuse.
She falls deeper into depression and, after her kids are grown, she decides she will commit suicide on her next birthday if her life does not get better. A few months before the fateful day, Angie decides she must confront her parents about the terrible deeds they have kept secret and forced her to bear.
Broken Pieces is an emotional rollercoaster that delves deep into God’s redemption to provide help and hope for those who suffer with a Study Guide and Resource section in the back of the book.
