"A talented writer with a journalism degree, Thompson adeptly plays with point of view employing both first person singular ("I") to convey her experiences, and first person plural ("We"), perhaps to denote a kinship among survivors."
~Chanticleer Book Reviews
"Rachel Thompson allows the reader to explore her struggles. She makes no apologies for herself or her past, nor does she makes excuses for her future. She sends a message that even though she was a victim of sexual abuse and assault as a child, that abuse does not define the person she has become. This book was a terrific read."
~P_Hernandez, Online Book Club
From the Author
Broken Places is a work of nonfiction essays, poetry, and prose where author Rachel Thompson opens her soul and invites you in for a visit. It's vulnerable, it's raw honesty, it's no-holds barred. After the enormously favorable reader and reviewer response to Broken Pieces, her first collection of serious essays, Rachel realized she had more to share. Most readers know her as the funny girl, but this shows that she can go into those long buried rooms, the ones we lock up deep inside, and share. 'These stories were there. I simply had to wait until my brain caught up.' ~ Rachel Thompson. Rachel is the creator and founder #SexAbuseChat on Twitter, collaborator on the #NoMoreShame Project anthology series, and an advocate for sexual abuse survivors.
