That raw emotion combined with Natalie's painfully honest delivery of the story carry this book. It sometimes glosses over scenes that could have used a little more depth and secondary characters...

Synopsis

Natalie is a wife. Natalie is a mother. Natalie is a cutter. Clawing at walls built by resentment, regret, and guilt, Natalie cuts as an escape from a life she never planned. Staying present is only possible when you let go of the past. But, what if the past won't let go of you?
 

About Andrea Randall

See more books from this Author
Andrea has been writing since she was a young child. Beginning with poetry and short stories, she learned the beauty and transformative power of words. She is a 2005 graduate of Cornell University, and currently resides in South Hadley, Massachusetts with her three children and her partner, Charles Sheehan-Miles. Who is swoony. Be jealous. Rebecca Espinoza, an Army wife, has lived in 8 different houses and 5 different states in the past 10 years and she can't wait for the next move. She is skilled in the arts of basket weaving, origami, and bullshitting. She is a book thief and likely to pilfer any she sees lying around in friends' houses, so keep an eye out if you invite her in. She currently resides in beautiful Wahiawa, Hawaii (Army wives will get this joke) with her two sons and dog, Tosh.0 (her most favorite person in the world...the dog, not the comedian), and her husband pops in from the field, missions, or deployment every now and then to say hello. She tends towards the sarcastic when referring to herself in third person. Rebecca is a Turtle, are you? Mary Wasowski is the queen of mastering many tasks. I call New Jersey my home where I share my life with my husband, and our three amazing sons. Writing was my way of expressing my words that sometimes I couldn't say. My journals were filled with the rants of a teenager finding her way, and eventually they turned into poems, and short stories. Joining the indie community of so many talented writers has been a wonderful experience. I am so thankful for all of the love and support I have received. Life can take you down many different roads, but I truly believe this is where I am suppose to be now. I want to inspire my boys to never give up on your dreams. I never did, and here I am. I am officially an Author. Write what you love. Love what you write. Believe in your story. You have many chapters to write on your journey... XOXO...Mary
