Broken Pieces is an award winning book about relationships, a study of women, and a book with heart. Vastly different in tone from her previous essay collections A Walk In The Snark and The Mancode: Exposed, Broken Pieces is a collection of pieces inspired by life: love, loss, abuse, trust, grief, and ultimately, love again. While still non-fiction, best-selling Broken Pieces is not humor at all. In Thompson’s most intensive work to date, she opens her soul and invites the reader in for a visit. Thompson goes into those long buried rooms we lock up deep inside and shares a bit of her soul. Broken Pieces is vulnerable, raw honesty, and no-holds barred.

Broken Pieces by Rachel Thompson is truly a unique book…a powerful narration of her life. Each word, each line leads the reader through her experiences, the depth of her emotions, flowing seamlessly from past to present, depicting how her past marked her marriage and family and formed the remarkable person she is today.”
~Readers’ Favorite

“This is a book about rising above; about becoming more than you can possibly believe you ever will be at those terribly low points of your life. It is about surviving, thriving and living and I recommend it more than any other book I have read.”
~Tracy Riva, Midwest Book Review, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer

“The book is written as a series of fragmentary essays. Thompson is a wonderful stylist, and the whole book is written in a very lyrical and poignant prose. This is not a book for leisure reading, but a powerful testament to the resilience and the indomitable nature of human spirit.”
~Dr. Bojan Tunguz, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer

“So ridiculously amazing, I can’t take it”
~Gabe Berman, author of Live Like A Fruit Fly

“Engrossed. It is a grippingly brilliant work”
~Frank Feather, author of FUTURISTIC LEADERSHIP A-Z

“Any woman who has had a former lover (or two or three) will be able to relate to this. Her writing is very poetic”

“A brilliant and intense must read”
~Jeffery Rowan, reader
