My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 poignant and brave stars to Beauty in the Broken Places! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

I have been a fan of Allison Pataki’s books because she writes in my favorite genre, historical fiction. In Beauty in the Broken Places, she bares her extraordinary heart in a personal memoir.

When she was five months pregnant, her young husband had a stroke while on a flight to their babymoon. Their lives were forever changed, but Allison easily found the silver lining and highlighted it in this book.

During his recovery, Allison wrote letters to her husband every day. She made an effort to include things that happened he would not remember on his own. The letters are at the heart of this memorable book.

Bottom line, Beauty in the Broken Places is filled with stunning writing, heartbreakingly beautiful emotion, and abundant inspiration. Like Allison says, “May we always remember.”
