In April 1998, Debra Puglisi Sharp -- wife, nurse, and mother of teenage twins -- was tending the roses in her garden when a factory worker with a cocaine habit slipped in through an open door and waited for her to come in. Nino, her husband of twenty-five years, got in the way and was shot. The man then attacked and raped Debra, placed her in the trunk of his car, and drove away. Kept hog-tied in her abductor's house, Debra finally learned of her husband's murder from a newscast on a radio that the man blared to muffle her screams while he was out. After five excruciating days, Debra's mounting rage at her captor -- and the wrenching thought of her children burying their father alone -- gave her the courage and strength she desperately needed. She loosened her ties, groped her way to the phone...and dialed 911. Shattered is an indelible portrait of hope, determination, and the agonizing journey back to life. Struggling to heal from her horrendous ordeal and the devastating loss of her husband, Debra also had to endure an agonizing court trial, the raw grief of her children, and her own crippling fear. But through her work in hospice care and as an advocate for victims of violence and trauma, she has slowly discovered the measure of her own strength. A compelling survival story -- tragic and ultimately heroic -- Shattered represents one woman's attempts to make sense of a senseless crime.… (mehr)

This is one of those books that I couldn't wait to read, mostly because of the premise and wonderful cover. First, let me start off by saying that the entire trilogy was inventive and impressive for anyone, let alone someone of this author's age. The characters pulled me in and I have thought about this book more than once - I've even considered re-reading it.

That being said, my biggest challenges were in the emotions of the character. I felt as though Laura was detached - this is in part because a majority of the emotions are told and happen in internal though as opposed to dialogue or physical reactions. My other challenge was in the romance romance romance romance Laura and Logan. You aren't actually even sure there is a romance until the end of the book and then the kiss is cut short.

As a reader, I would have liked a little more emotion and romance in the book. Aside from this, it was an interesting storyline and I'd be interested to see what this author writes next. ( )

Had to go and search to see when I read this book. On bookcrossing I gave it 7.5 so I'll give it 3 stars here. and 8 is 4 stars. Do not remember much of this book which is not such a good sign but on the other hand, my memory is really bad and i read a lot. ( )

Short story with YA in mind with a paranormal story line. Interesting story, a little rushed so I didn't build an emotional connection to any of characters. ( )
