~ Coming Unglued is a story of hope and courage even in the face of adversity. It reveals the good, the bad and the ugly parts of marriage and/or relationships yet is balanced so as not to drag the reader down. The characters are strong and, in some cases, you may see them in your mirror. ~

Kelly had everything a young woman could hope for: an admirable boyfriend, a strong family unit and the determination to succeed.

A few moments shattered everything. En route to a friend's house, Kelly was raped and, weeks later, learned she was pregnant. Debating the best course of action, Kelly found herself facing her greatest fears as she explored long held desires of her heart and soul.

When life seemed to have settled into a normal routine, a surprise encounter with her rapist changed Kelly's life forever. After apologizing and confessing his undying love, he set about winning Kelly's heart.

Tragedy strikes. Hearts are broken; lives are shattered. In trying to move forward, Kelly makes a decision which will affect everyone who loves her - a decision which brings her to the lowest depths of hell within a marriage.

According to Michael Phelps, author of two Mike Walsh Detective Novels, co-author of My Fugitive with Ellie Janssen and author of David Janssen: Our Conversations, Coming Unglued is "riveting, striking, inspiring... a book everyone should read who is, or has been, involved with domestic abuse!"

Adds Jeanie Greer of Englewood, Florida, "I finished Coming Unglued and, even though what I went through couldn't come close to Kelly's experiences, it nevertheless mirrored much of the emotional turmoil, grief and sadness I endured. This is surely a read that can also help with the healing process that must take place in order to move on."

Though she lives further north than many of her friends and acquaintances, she is quick to point out that she is really located a little further south of the geographical center of Canada - so she is nowhere near the North Pole.Meanwhile, Norma dedicates most of her spare time writing - when not snuggling into her grandboy or entertaining (or being challenged by) her kids. During the autumn of 2011, Norma published the first book of her Freedom in Love Series. December, 2011, brought the second book to the readers bookshelves and 2013 will see the third book published. Will there be a fourth? Norma feels certain there will be.Norma enjoys reading and makes time for it most days. She has discovered that, staying at the work site during lunch hour - albeit away from work - provides a great opportunity to get ahead with her reading. Absorbing every word, she escapes into another world which enables her to relax. Of course, when she reads a book and enjoys it, she promotes it at Budden Book Reviews.Of course, Norma also enjoys writing poetry, especially poems which whisper to the soul on some level. Some are deeper than others and she began sharing some of her poems on her blog titled, Random Reflections.Seriously, Norma Budden enjoys so many things. She enjoys traveling, photography and walking along a sandy shore. At other times, she is sitting at a sewing machine bringing articles and clothing to life. There seems to be no end to her creativity and she looks forward to a promising future.
