The Darkness of My Shattered Heart By Elizabeth Jordan Review
At seventeen, Elizabeth Jordan lost her first boyfriend in an accident. At twenty-two, she lost her fiancé in another accident. She crawled into a bottle of vodka to cope and stayed there for over a year. When a surgery went horribly wrong, the only way Elizabeth could see to remove the pain was suicide. She watched her parents deteriorate as she cared for them, and losing them weeks apart dropped her into a pit of darkness. Three months later, she lost one of her greatest friends, sending her even deeper into darkness and despair. And all of this while she dealt with a nephew who was on meth and a sister who would not give her mother her dying wish.
The Darkness of My Shattered Heart is a story about how Elizabeth Jordan fought through love, loss, alcohol abuse, and attempted suicide, and made it back from the depths of hell to find a sliver of light. Let her story inspire you to dig deeper into yourself than you ever thought was possible for strength.
Cassandra's Review- After ten chapters of sadness and emotions, this becomes a part two of poems and random words. It was hard for me to really follow and get into mentally. I know that the author was writing in a style that was real and true to her and so I feel that she deserves acknowledgement and praise.
