A Broken Family

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
At thirty-one, Mary Jo hadn’t been in contact with her parents or brother in over ten years. Not only had they failed to support her, they sided with the man she accused of sexually abusing her as a child. She left town—but not the memories—behind to begin a new life. That is, until a phone call brought her back.

About JaeLynn Topper

JaeLynn Topper has led a varied and interesting life, beginning as a blueberry picker (she might have been a child when she did this—she's not saying). Stints as a babysitter, a certified nursing assistant for senior citizens, and an office manager followed. During her years as a co-owner of a body shop, she helped overhaul classic cars. She was part of a small group who traveled to New York City after the 9/11 attacks to prepare and serve Thanksgiving dinner to firefighters.

This Midwestern cat lover has a soft spot for fast cars (especially Corvettes), likes word games, tattoos with meaning, and loves nothing more than walking on the beach or baking cookies and bread to share with friends. She has two grown children who occasionally honor her with temporary custody of their antique furniture and beloved cats.

JaeLynn uses her own experiences and challenges in her writing, infusing her stories with genuine emotions and life-lessons. Her easy-to-read style and authentic voice make her a firm favorite with her readers.

Wonderful story, reminded me of a friend who suffered as a child but is now a very strong, capable woman who is always willing to help others.

I loved this well thought out story, being a survivor of this same abuse, I could identify with the main character "Mary Jo" The anger and cutting off all ties. Though it was my Grandmother instead of as "Aunt Ruby" I thank God for my grandparents....well done Jaelynn Topper!!!!
