Fractured Not Broken is a true story of loss, faith, and a rare love that only happens in nonfiction.
In a sweeping and heart-wrenching narrative, Kelly exposes the truth about what happened after a drunk driver rendered her a quadriplegic. She shares how she found her way back—through faith and pain, her community, her family, and the love of a man she prayed for.
"This book has been a true encouragement to me. Thank you Kelly for sharing your story— the loss and the unexpected joy— so that each reader can be uplifted knowing there is a full, rich life available to those who lean in to our Lord Jesus." —Renee Bondi, Award-Winning Singer and Songwriter
"Life has its tragic moments of defeat, setbacks, and fracturing for everyone. Kelly's story proves, however, that individual momentum, personal progress, and genuine achievement can still be attained. Her courage and optimism are uplifting. Open these pages and experience the joy of ultimate victory." —Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Author Jesus in All Four Seasons
"This is a real life story of heroic virtue—especially of courage, humility, and generosity—a triumph of faith, hope and love. This story involves the very essence of the human spirit, family, and community. To know Kelly and her journey of miracles is to know that with God all things are possible."—Most Reverend Charles C. Thompson Bishop of Evansville
Loved this book!
It so clearly revealed the life of a severely handicapped person - the challenges and the heartbreak and the successes. She is such a winner.
Extraordinary memoir - beautiful.
Sue Carroll - I absolutely loved this book, and you will too. It's a true page turner. I could not put it down.
Fractured Not Broken
It was truly inspiring to read the trials and triumphs of Kelly and Shawn. I couldn’t put the book down and read it cover to cover in 2 nights. Kelly, you are an inspiration to many and your story is a testament to never give up and live life to its fullest regardless of limitations. As I was reading, I realized that we should always appreciate what we have and to never take things for granted. May you and Shawn have a lifetime of happiness.
