WOW - I must say this is not at all what I expected and in a good way . A emotional rollercoaster filled with a twist I didnt expect ! After reading the blurb I wasnt sure what to expect but delving into this book I was taken aback a few steps and found myself quiet heartbroken. There is a message behind this story, and I hope that readers do see this.
Im one of those teary eyed readers as soon as tragidy of this mutli tude comes forth Im sniffing and frantically reading to find out the outcome. ** thinking to myself whyyyyyyyyyy ??? ** Cystal has thrown in heartbreak and loss in this short story that has not only gripped at my heart but leaving me heartbroken for David. Relating to his loss, the things we lean upon at our times of need are not always a good thing, we question our faith, wander why the loss and if Someone is really punishing us to leave us this way and of course the question we all ask WHY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A short read that will have you reading from begining to end, teary eyed and somewhat happy at the ending. ** I can say the only relief I have at the ending was that Mariza helped David to regain his faith - his strength and move on with his life. Im not a religious person,(( Its not that I dont believe )) but I throughly enjoyed this heartfelt story . I believe and have witnessed people 's faith and I must say this story reflects the ups and downs of life. Doubting life, your faith, and things thrown upon you... where you just have to pull up those socks and solider on. Very true to life, and realistically written.
Twists and turns, emotional angist and heartbreak but also a light at the end of that dark tunnell.
A compelling short story, that will not only make your heart ache, but leave you wandering way past the last page.
Once reading the book the cover reflects it to the tee, I think its a beautiful cover and a great storyline to inspire those who may have stumbled off The broken road.
HOPE - What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise"
God Bless The Broken Road is a story about a brother and sister who are very close to each other despite being about 6 years apart in age.They learned heartache at a young age,when their parents divorced.Occasionally the children were taken to church but nothing consistent.David found God in hos early youth and had great faith,while his sister Mariza,didn't believe in God and lived life carefree and wild.As they got older something happened to David that set him on a path away from God.Being concerned about David,Mariza takes him on a trip to Colorado to try to get him out of his depression.Now she is the one speaking faith into David's life while he doubts God.On the road trip they are stopped by state troopers because the highway is shut down. Tragedy strikes the lives of theses siblings and David goes into a downward spiral of self destruction.Can he recover and get on with life despite this tragedy? Can he find God and his faith again?
The only thing I found frustrating about this story was the lack of police intelligence. I mean, bad stuff happens when they are around, supposedly protecting the people. I felt that they were portrayed very weak and not very smart in their decisions and inner workings at the scenes of investigation. Grrr. If police worked that way in real life, no one would ever get convicted of murder.
Otherwise, I love how Ms Cattabriga's writing is well thought out and transitions are smooth but heart wrenching. I was only sad that things turned out the way they did with Mariza. She seemed like an amazing strong character that would have made for an interesting read to hang out with her more.
