When your life falls apart, how do you find your way through the broken pieces and the pain to peace?
In this searingly honest book, New York Times best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the most recent decade of her life and how, despite overnight success as a TV star on Oprah, her world crumbled around her. She speaks movingly about the breakdown of her 40 year marriage, her falling out with Oprah and the abuse she suffered in childhood. She heart-wrenchingly describes her daughter Gemmia’s long battle with colon cancer and how her death on Christmas day shattered Iyanla’s heart into a million pieces.
With her troubled marriage, her daughter’s illness and struggling with her sudden celebrity, the only thing that sustained Iyanla was her commitment to know and serve God. Iyanla’s journey from being broken, damaged, and desperate to finding peace, offered her new found knowledge that you can implement whatever your personal situation. Her story will help you gain a new understanding of the patterns that families unconsciously pass down through the generations; how you can learn from your relationships and how to put your personal puzzle together so that you can dare to claim the peace that you truly deserve.
Part moving personal memoir and part inspirational guide, Peace from Broken Pieces is a story about men and money, love and work, mothers and daughters, and life and death that will help you move beyond pain.
