Book Review & Giveaway: Every Shattered Thing




Every Shattered Thing by Elora Nicole Ramirez: Stephanie fights reality every day. The voices inside, the ones declaring her worth, deem her broken, used and dirty. She is an object. A toy. Something to be tossed aside when bored. Who will believe her if she whispers the truth about her wrecking ball of a family? Eventually, her secret explodes and the person who means the most to her knows just how shattered she is and why she's so afraid. But rescue is closer than she realizes. Hidden in plain sight, her horror hasn’t been ignored by everyone. Racing against the truth of what she faces, forces are joining together and developing a plan to free her from the hell in her own backyard. And while she’s at her lowest point, she’s hit with the beauty of love at any cost - redemption in the face of ruin. Will it be enough?


Lori's thoughts: This book was captivating enough to keep me turning pages, making me want to see what happened to Stephanie. The corruption around her is unfathomable and knowing that things like this really go on is truly horrifying. The story reminded me of Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan. There were similarities, but there were differences, too. 

It's one thing to get abused by someone who is supposed to love us -- such as a spouse -- but a member of our own family?! This isn't supposed to happen! But it does, sadly.

I liked the story line. I enjoyed the book, but the ending leaves us with a bit of a cliffhanger.











Elora Ramirez Bio:

Elora Ramirez lives in Austin, Texas with her chef-husband. At the age of four, she taught herself how to read and write, cutting her teeth on books like Dr. Seuss and writing anywhere she could find the space--including her Fisher Price kitchen set, the pages of picture books and Highlights Magazine. Since then, she's grown to love the way words feel as they swell within her bones. Writing holy and broken is her calling, and pushing back the darkness and pursuing beauty through story is her purpose. She embraces the power of story and teaches women from all parts of the world how to embrace theirs. She has a knack of calling things out , the truth and the detail, the subversive threads that make a life a story. She loves hip-hop, wishes she lived by the beach and cannot write without copious amounts of coffee, chocolate, music, and her husband's lavender liqueur.
