Publisher's Summary

Destiny Jones is doing just fine on her own, thanks. From her thriving one-woman carpentry business to the loving support of her small-town community, Destiny has constructed a life as sturdy and polished as her best cabinets. Twenty years ago, Destiny's world collapsed when her mother died and her father, Albert, abandoned his daughter to pursue acting in New York. His devastating exit taught Destiny a lesson in self-reliance that has kept her safe - and alone - ever since.

Now Albert Jones is back, begging for a second chance. Destiny suspects he's simply staging another performance, starring himself as the prodigal father. Should she act on her misgivings? Or listen to her inner child, who still yearns for a family? When Albert divulges a shocking secret, Destiny's life will again be turned upside down.

Kathleen Long's warm, wise novel reveals that the armor that has protected us in the past is often the very thing we must shed to fully live and love.

    "Depressing and predictable"

    This may be the worst book I have ever wasted my time listening too. So very predictable and depressing! Boring with absoultely no surprises.

    "Good book!"

    This book tugged at the heart strings. It took awhile to get into the book at least for me. i found the beginning to be a bit lackluster but after the first 5-7 chapters it does really start to get very good. I had trouble putting it on pause after that. i like the narration. the woman reading had a pleasant soothing voice.

    "Beautiful story"

    Beautiful story of healing heartbreak and balancing life's beauty with its pain. Well written without being trite and schmaltzy. Well performed as well (although the narrator had a habit of saying "crans" instead of "crayons" which, to me, is like saying "libary" instead of "library". A bit distracting.) Altogether a beautiful book for a long weekend at the cabin or on the beach.

    Story
    "Life full circle"
    Would you listen to Broken Pieces again? Why?

    I think I would, just because it is a great story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters were well written and well narrated, each given a life and voice of their own.


    Have you listened to any of Jacquie Floyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I have listened to Jacquie Floyd, and I hope to do so again soon.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given a copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

    "insightful"

    insightful and poignantly touching. this addresses many issues for families who are dealing with life threatening disease or brokenness from perceived abandonment.
