Comment: This is a formerly-owned book with no writing or highlighting, a perfect spine, and little-to-no wear. It is in very good shape, but there is a pen price on title-page.

More About the Author

As it says on the back cover of Broken Pottery, "She wrote this book with God's help." That is not an understatement. I have not been a novel writer by profession or hobby. I am "just" a nice, middle-aged woman who felt pushed, by an inner voice, to write this book and once I finally could no longer resist and took the chance, the dialogue just spewed forth creating this intricate plot. It took more than a year to fill in the details surrounding the dialogue I "heard in my head and transcribed."

I believe this book is a reflection of me trying to understand my Christian faith and the faith I see in others, both Christian and not Christian. It dives into the topics of selfishness and greed, disease, poverty, homosexuality, and even politics -- how much control should our government have on us?

I do believe in the saving Grace of Jesus Christ. There may be many paths to Jesus, but HE is the way, the truth, and the life.

Customer Reviews

The preface was way too long, By the time I was through with that, I had lost interest in the book.
Margaret Wadley
I almost put this book down because, as others have reviewed, it is not cohesive and there were points where I found it confusing.
Brenda N.
I love the characters, how their stories played out and the amazing spiritual truths that were woven throughout the story.

Inspired message about suffering and redemption but referencing supporting books like The Shack and A Purpose Driven Life. Hmmm. I don't think a lot of thought was put into this aspect of the book. Mild language. Totally unnecessary as it detracts from the message of the book.

This by far has been the worst book I have ever read in my entire life. I have read hundreds, of books, and this by far is at the bottom on my list. First, I want to say this Author is twisted. For someone who is trying to write about God's goodness, they sure have a nasty mouth. Not sure how you can quote Bible, then turn around use God's name in vain, and cuss like a sailor. This book made me sick. I couldn't finish, and had to ask God to forgive me for reading such trash. Horrible book. I would never recommand this book to anyone, not even the Devil himself. Oh, yeah, also the chartcers in this book were not horrible as well. Come on Beverly Lewis! What? By the way Beverly Lewis would never be involved in trash like this. Joan K. Smith, that was my first and last to ever open a book of yours. I do hope you truly seek the Lord for guidance.

I almost put this book down because, as others have reviewed, it is not cohesive and there were points where I found it confusing. I also didn't care for the chapters about before the people were born and afterwards... too speculative and the story would have been just fine without them.

However, I kept reading and found it very interesting how the different storylines are brought together towards the end of the book. Fans of "End Times" stories should stick with the book and I think would enjoy the story as I did.

Format: Kindle Edition
The purpose of this novel is to promote awareness of humanity's purpose on Earth, to exercise free will and to make the decision as to whether we live our lives devoted to God, or devoted to anything that's not God. After an intriguing prologue narrated by a soul waiting in Heaven for its time on Earth, the author develops two simultaneous story lines. In the prologue, three types of lives are mentioned: those who are awarded most Earthly blessings ( a loving home, good health, financial security, friends, a rewarding career); those who are either born with difficulties (Down's, physiological deformities, etc.), or who develop ill health later in life (perhaps a debilitating disease, for example) and who consequently live what others view as an abbreviated life; and those who are born into really atrocious conditions, such as in Third World countries, with ill health, starvation, famine, and war.

The two protagonists, whose story lines alternate, are Janice and Sophie. Janice seems at first to fit into the first category, as she has loving parents, good school friends, and a devoted boyfriend whom she knows will eventually marry her. Additionally, she has been a churchgoer since a very young age, and knows God, although she practices underage drinking and occasional pot-smoking at parties. But on her first day in college, she experiences an event which turns her life inside out and sets her on a downward spiral psychologically and emotionally. Suddenly she has forgotten about her devotion to the Lord, and instead seems to have started on a path of emotional self-destruction.

Sophie, on the other hand, suffers greatly as a young girl.

Broken Pottery is the inspired second coming of C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters. This is a challenging read for high schoolers on up. Real life issues meet free will choice. Theology made enjoyable! Well done!

Overall, this book has a good message but I really struggled with the way it was delivered. I read Christian books so I don't have to read books with bad language and sex. I had a really hard time with reading the Lord's name taken in vain. I don't think a true Christian book should have that in it at all. There was some language in this book that could have been left out but it wasn't as offensive to me as the other. The book was long and drawn out and I almost quit reading it several times. There were times that it was choppy. Although I do agree with the message that was given, I would have a hard time recommending this book.

This book was very different from what I envisioned from the cover and title, a lesson in looking inside before making a purchase.

A must read!! I realize this book is classified as fiction, but there are so many Spiritual Truths to it!!! The author made me feel as if I had jumped into the book, with her characters. It is the type of book that you will put down physically, but carry with you in your Spirit. Brilliant work! I could not put it down! A++++
