About the Author
At the time of writing, Rachel was a Dementia Clinical Nurse Specialist with a background in intensive care. Prior to nursing, she worked as a dementia adviser in the community. She is passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding long-term conditions and helping people live well.

Love, loss, sexual abuse, date rape, grief. Not easy subjects, but real ones -- told in pieces (thus the title). Poetry, prose, and essays to let you into one woman's life.

'5-stars! It is rare when a writer puts so much of him or herself on the paper that you can see them bleed, but Rachel Thompson boldly steps out of the shadows and puts herself in the light that shows her wounds, her flaws, her heart and you can't help but be moved.

This book is about surviving, thriving and living. I recommend it more than any other book I have read.

Broken Pieces by Rachel Thompson is truly a unique book. Acompilation of essays, each one independent of but connected to therest, so as to construct a seemingly random string of confessions fromthe very soul of the author. Seen as one, they make up a powerfulnarration of her life. Life-changing, scarring experiences that no woman should have to endure, such as childhood abuse and a passionate, karmic, but destructive love, deeply affected the author's psyche. Eachword, each line leads the reader through her experiences, the depth ofher emotions, flowing seamlessly from past to present, depicting howher past marked her marriage and family and formed the remarkable person she is today.
