Iyanla Vanzant’s Peace From Broken Pieces [Book Review]
And when I read this while, in my late teens, I have to admit just the ideas presented about spirituality, and pathologies hit me in such a way that I had to pieeces reflect. We have had very similar paths; I’ve had multiple marriages, lost my entire life savings,my home, BUT I have never sat with my adult child and watched him die!
I am so Blessed to have found this book, I started crying the first 5 chapters. This book is for those who DARE to have the faith and courage for something new. This book is so amazing! Her life is one tragic episode after another starting from day one in childhood into adulthood. People who bought this also bought Peace from Broken Pieces: I absolutely HATE when good books are ruined in audio version because of boring, snoring, robotic, unhuman sounding narrators.
There were also grammatical errors, typos and some erroneous information, like Iyanla thinks aids can be spread in a hot tub and had a big fight with her ex husband over this. I was not impressed! She makes it very clear that she favors her middle child.
