    Broken Whole is the author's story of searching for meaningful relationships. She was estranged from her father for years, then reconnected. She walked out of a twelve year marriage and then jumped from relationship to relationship that never panned out. She spent years waiting for a man she loved to be emotionally available, only to realize he would always be elusive. It's a depressing read and sad. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC.

    Why oh why do we automatically think that everyone needs to hear our life story?!! I am around author's age, and there are a few similarities,but overall not a good book. Thanks to author,publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book. While I got the book for free,it had no bearing on the rating I gave it.
