From the publisher:
Everybody does it—sneaks out of the house now and then. It’s harmless enough, right? Not this time. Cleo Neilson faces the chilling consequences of her actions. Now she has a secret and can’t tell anyone, and it’s breaking her heart. As Cleo fights through her grief and guilt, she learns about faith in God and forgiveness through him. As teenage girls read Cleo’s journey, they too will learn the value of having faith and receiving forgiveness as well as just how dangerous it really is to keep a secret.
Shattered ~ A Daughter’s Regret is powerful, gut wrenching, emotional and a truly outstanding book! This is a story that will stay with me for a long, long time. Honestly, I kept wishing this book had been out when I was a teenager.
Ms. Carlson has such a deep understanding of young adults. Through out this story she addresses so much of what many teens are going through in this stage of their lives. She also leads the reader to understand that for each choice, there is a consequence and that through it all God’s love can heal and forgive but in a way that isn’t soppy or preachy.
While this book is targeted for young adults, I encourage it for readers of all ages; there is truly something for everyone to enjoy and learn in this wonderful book!
