Cry Loud and Expose the Abuse

Heather and CJ both suffer, and in the end, both lose. All in the name of love. Heather, because of what she endured during her childhood, was willing to try and deal with her situation with Marvin. CJ's problem was he saw so much abuse growing up he allowed it to affect his mind.

Tremayne Moore’s “Pieces of Me: Finding Heather Jones” was a very touching one because it touched on things that really happen in day-to-day life for a lot of women as well as men. Abuse is

I have won this book through the Goodreads giveaway.
Thank you so much for signing it.

I was surprised when the book arrived and it was only 70 pages. But to be honest, it was the perfect amount of pages.

The story made me think about the abuse I suffered in my childhood and with my ex-husband.

I never took it serious and even blamed myself for it. After reading this book I now know I'm not to blame and the abuse was very serious.

Thank you so much for writing what I never wanted to believe.

I received this book for free in a giveaway.

Pieces of me has really opened my eyes to the world of abuse, it's much more complicated than people who haven't gone through it might think. It's sad that things like this happen to people and Heathers story was saddening to read about but aside from all the sadness I think the realization Heather comes to in the end and CJ's outlook on how things should be are beautiful. Now that being said I love how this book was written it comes in at 70 pages (th

Who knew that a book that is less than 70 pages could leave me speechless and really feeling some type of way? Pieces of Me gives us insight into a woman who is a sexual abuse survivor trying to put herself back together. The story is sad yet very frustrating. It is frustrating because there are so many real-life stories like Heather’s but because of shame and guilt the survivors aren’t sharing them. And, also as depicted in the book, the church isn’t a place of support as it should be for peopl ...more

"Pieces of Me" is a story about Heather Jones who is facing various types of abuse that may be overlooked. Tremayne Moore clearly shares her story about sexual abuse in the home of her parents caused by her father, and learned she could get out of the household if she got pregnant. Therefore, she did just that and hoped life would be better by moving in with a neighborhood friend, Marvin, whom she's know since third grade. Her life still went down a rocky-road after the birth of her son, Jaden.

Author Tremayne Moore has pieced together another timely and somewhat controversial book dealing with the issues of abuse. This is Heather Jones story, and for any woman or man that has ever dealt with abuse, Heather will leave you with a feeling of both conviction and remorse as the book concludes. It is perhaps amazing how the victim sticks with the abuser for whatever particular reason, and no matter what outside sources may say, the victim still goes back. This book could have been a five-st ...more

I am in tears right now! When I picked up this book to read it I never would have imagined that it would have mirrored my journey with men in my life. I see why the title is Pieces of Me. It had Pieces of me all in it. This is a AWESOME testimony of Heather Jones life that shows it is really hard to let go. I too had to go through the same things. I was told that this one guy was like a drug to me I kept going back even though I knew the relationship was no good for me. It takes a lot of strengt ...more

Tremayne Moore's Pieces of Me: Finding Heather Jones is an excellent book. One that everyone should read.

Pieces of me was a carefully constructed story of Heather Jones and her quest to break through the chains of abuse. Tremayne delicately laid down the details of abuse and some of the thoughts that may travel through the mind of the person that is being abused. Nicely written Tremayne. I can't wait for the discussion.

I never dreamed of being a writer when I was in elementary school. My desire was to be a singer and to be a guest performer on Soul Train (keep in mind, this is 1979-1980). Throughout elementary school, my extracurricular activities were reading (which I was an avid reader) and singing.
I would try to write when I was nine but because what I wrote made no sense I chose not to dwell on it. A few ye
