Fractured Not Broken is a true story of loss, faith, and a rare love that only happens in nonfiction.
In a sweeping and heart-wrenching narrative, Kelly exposes the truth about what happened after a drunk driver rendered her a quadriplegic. She shares how she found her way back through faith and pain, her community, her family, and the love of a man she prayed for.
This book has been a true encouragement to me. Thank you Kelly for sharing your story the loss and the unexpected joy so that each reader can be uplifted knowing there is a full, rich life available to those who lean in to our Lord Jesus. Renee Bondi, Award-Winning Singer and Songwriter
Life has its tragic moments of defeat, setbacks, and fracturing for everyone. Kelly’s story proves, however, that individual momentum, personal progress, and genuine achievement can still be attained. Her courage and optimism are uplifting. Open these pages and experience the joy of ultimate victory. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Author of Jesus in All Four Seasons
This is a real life story of heroic virtue especially of courage, humility, and generosity a triumph of faith, hope and love. This story involves the very essence of the human spirit, family, and community. To know Kelly and her journey of miracles is to know that with God all things are possible.
Most Reverend Charles C. Thompson Bishop of Evansville
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.
This book is about Kelly and the devastating car accident that has left her a quadriplegic and her brother with severe brain trauma.
I am inspired by Kelly. She has not let her injury define her, or stop her from living life to the fullest. She had dreams for her life and she has done everything in her power to see those dreams come true. The road to them may be harder now, but they are still attainable.
Kelly has had a lot of support from her family, friends, medical staff. What has helped her the most though is her faith in God. She has placed her dreams, hopes, fears into his hands and he has provided for her.
This is a very inspiring book. We all have challenges in life, no one has the perfect life. It’s easy to give up hope and faith when your life doesn’t turn out the way you envisioned it. Sometimes in our life things happen for a reason that we don’t know right away. Sometimes we never know why things happen the way they do. You just have to make the best of what life gives you.
