Shards Of My Heart - Review

Buy Now!


When I took the vows for better or worse, I meant them. Then I started to wonder if there was a limit as to how much worse I was supposed to endure. Am I supposed to stay if worse means that me and my daughter are in danger? What if the worse was because of a mental illness? When is enough simply too much?

This is a different kind of love story. Read Nina’s journals for a tale of hope, strength of spirit, and unconditional love.

Shards of My Heart Trailer

Nicole has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina for the past twelve years and now...she lives in secrecy in another state.
  Her journey of elf-discovery and recovery has barely begun and she faces it with her head held high, her shoulders back, a smile on her face, and hope in her heart. Every day of her life seems to bring new adventures, some bigger, better, shinier and prettier than others. 

For fun, she spends time with those she cares about, cooks, reads, writes, and especially lives to travel. The current travel goal: visit every Margaritaville. Three down! (Eleven to go?)

In May, Nicki started the blog Stories and Swag to promote authors. Several months later, she started Stories and Swag Tours, a blog tour company offering cover reveals, release blitzes, release parties on Facebook, and blog tours. In addition, she started Dominatrix Publishing, a boutique publishing company, to help other authors achieve publishing success.

Her writing can also be found on Shine, where she is a Shine Parenting Guru and an award winning Yahoo! Contributor on YourWisdom as the relationship and dating expert. In addition, she has been published by McClatchy News in their syndicated papers. 

Her books can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and Smashwords in ebook, paperback, and even some audiobooks.

My Review:
Stars: 4.5

This was a phenomenal story that will capture the hearts of readers regarding the struggles with domestic violence. This is such a strong issue today and is definitely a difficult subject to write about but Nicole Andrews Moore did a great job capturing the true aspects of domestic violence. I felt it was very empowering! There is help out there for those who need it…. You just need to look for it and be willing and ready.

Not all domestic violence is to the extreme or even begins that way. It is a gradual process that will build over time until that person finally snaps and the victim is so far involved in the relationship it is hard to get out. My heart broke for Nina and all she had to experience with Shane. She cared so much about his well being but at the same time she had her daughter, Kylie, who had special needs to think about. She chooses her daughter and does what is best for her no matter how many times she questions some of her actions. I felt pride for Nina for taking a stance!

Many times in these types of relationships you think the abuser will change and things will get better. You love that person and want the best for them but when do you finally say enough is enough???!!! You can’t change people; they must be willing to change themselves. Nina is a strong and confident woman and in the end she figures it all out!

I hope that people remember that there is more than just physical abuse in relationships. You can also be verbally and mentally abused and if you ever find yourself in any of those types of relationships please seek help!
