Deep, raw and emotional

Brilliant collection of essays and poems that expose the unvarnished emotions of being human. Rachel Thompson writes without apology, holding nothing back as she reveals her true self in layers, flaying the skin from her bones without mercy. As raw and visceral as it it, each story shares a lesson in learning to not be victimized. Whether threatened by a lover, co worker, or the sexual predator next door, Rachel Thompson looks deeply into her own soul trying to find a way to glue her broken self together to survive another day. Her stories touched me, and although our experiences were different, I recognized and identified with her emotions. I recognized a soul sister, one who has been to hell and danced with the devil, but had the courage to take back her spirit and find her way to redeem both her ravaged heart and find peace. This is a woman who knows her true self and is unafraid to explore and expose it.

Happy Reading!
