About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

For years I wanted to write the story of the abuse that my father suffered at the hands of his father, but he was always a little concerned that he may offend some family members with the truth of his terrible story. Finally, at the age of 86 and with the encouragement of his living siblings, he told the whole story of how as a child, he had been broken physically, emotionally and mentally and how that abuse led him into a life of crime. He told of the miraculous way that he found Christ and how he had to serve prison time when he paid restitution. This story is truly amazing. God in his loving kindness can fix and restore, even a broken boy.

Deftly constructed at 128 pages, The Broken Boy is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Biography/ General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Broken Boy meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.
