Broken Hearts Healed: A Story of Transformation, is a powerfully poetic and poignant testimonial of a woman coping with the wounds of childhood sexual abuse. Carrying this secret with her as she grows through cycles of despair, Ruth McElwee shares how she has coped through anger and denial, as well as the gradual acceptance and freedom from her past. McElwee courageously shares her repressed emotions, the fragility of brokenness in a concrete, matter-of-fact tonality, which will grasp you by the heart. McElwee's attentiveness to her self-awareness and her attunement to creative writing results in a book showing you there is redemption in Jesus, freedom in forgiveness and hope for the darkest of hours.
