“BROKEN PLACES succeeds as the gritty memoir of a woman who was sexually assaulted when she was young and the author’s story of survival will surprise the reader because of its candidness and unexpected ending.”

Broken Places by Rachel Thompson is a very descriptive, well-written memoir of abuse…Author Rachel Thompson has a well-developed vocabulary for describing one of the worst experiences of her life — sexual abuse at the hands of her pedophile neighbor…Broken Places should help other people realize that they don’t have to be ashamed or embarrassed by what happened.”
