This to me felt like three separate and only vaguely connected stories: Cat's ordeal, the love story, and Maddie's illness. I enjoyed the majority of each story, but they didn't feel like one cohesive book.

I am not typically a fan of soulmate stories, and this one had my usual complaint: the nonbeliever flips to a complete soulmate believer with very little detail. One look and that's it. No struggling against or difficulties excepting the idea at all.

I also felt that the

When I read the synopsis for this book, I couldn't wait to read it. I love stories about people overcoming incredible obstacles and finding true love. In this book, the main character, Catherine, is raped, stabbed, and left for dead. At the hospital, Dr. Alan Peterson takes over her care and as soon as he lays eyes on her he feels an immediate connection. He's never even seen her before, but he already feels like he knows her. As she slowly recovers, he makes himself a fixture in her life, being ...more

I believe A Soul Less Broken would be classified as inspirational fiction - the protagonist, Catherine Wilcox, endures devastating tragedy leaving her broken, spiritually and physically, but is able to recover hope and purpose in her life.
The novel deliberately yanks at the heartstrings demanding sympathy for the characters, Catherine lost her mother at a young age, has little self esteem after years of being victimised by a philandering father, also now dead, and yet is studying law in a desir

There are two things in the world that I would consider God's great gifts and that is love and friendship. You are a blessed person once you have the opportunity to experience the best of both of them in your life as some never experience them at all.

Catherine Wilcox has endured her fair share of storms in her life. Probably more so than we would ever experience in our own life time. Both of her parents died early in her life, with her mom passing later than her father of emphysema b

A Soul Less Broken is a touching story of two women valiantly fighting the giants in their lives. It has a sad ending, but hope resonates well because even though one of them lost her battle, she fought it well. For me, that was the beauty of this story. It is not only about fighting all the giants, but it is also about fighting them well.

There are two major serious issues dealt with in this book - rape and cancer. The print version of this book is 178 pages long. At 178 pages, it is
Meg - A Bookish Affair
This is the sort of book that makes you thankful for good friends and thankful that your friends are alright. It's also the kind of book that makes you thankful for what you have. This book covers two very hard subjects: rape and cancer. It also covers how important love and friendship are to getting us through the tough things in life. Sometimes you just need a good friend to show you that everything will (eventually) be okay again and we all know that sometimes you need that person to step in ...more

While it had a good story - of a girl overcoming a brutal rape and attack - there were several things I didn't like. Several bad words sprinkled throughout the book (half of which took the Lord's name in vain). The rape scene was a bit disturbing, so I couldn't recommend this to any younger readers. Definitely a mature read. The writing could use some work. It was choppy, there was a lot of head-hopping, and more telling then showing. Just a few chapters into the book, I found myself skimming th ...more

This is a story about love, loss, friendship, devastation, struggle, pain, and ultimately triumph. It's the type of story that, even though parts are upsetting and maybe even a little disturbing, you're reminded of how precious and fragile life is, and it gives you the opportunity to hopefully look at life and your own life experiences in a different way. Life can be brutal and cruel, and the world can seem like a terrible, scary place, but when you open yourself up, it can also be a beautiful p ...more

A Soul Less Broken is fantastic and truly one of the best stories I have ever read. Helen Laibach is an amazing author that kept me wanting more. This story had it all from fear, devastation, hope, courage and my Once I began reading it I could not put it down. Helen provides us with a complex love story of three friends overcoming life's unexpected obstacles. I cannot wait for her next story. Until then I am reading it again.
