    Wow..where to begin. I absolutely loved this book. Unbroken to

    Wow..where to begin. I absolutely loved this book. Unbroken took me through a range of emotions that literally made me love and hate most of Martha's inner circle. The familiaraity with the story line really hit me hard, from physical and mental abuse to turning to drugs as an outlet from that abuse. LWC forced the reader, through her words, to examine their spiritual relationship with God. The power of this book, in my opinion, is that almost everyone has or knows of someone like Martha. I was continually surprised at her actions because I don't relate an educated black woman being so weak minded. Her childhood was deplorable and wept for her and Maudine. I could only imagine not having love and protection from my mother. I would have loved a few words on the demise of her father but that is just me wanting revenge. I was really surprised at how Maudine handled life and family. She became the matriarch of the Johnson family by working on herself and not looking for a man to define her. My girl Martha just refused to open her eyes and realize that the answer was inside her all along. Jacob as it turns out was just a educated bully who more than likely watched his father do the same things that he was doing to Matha. I never trusted him with Martha because I really felt he was of the mindset that he was better than others. I knew in my heart that Martha would never leave him and feared that one day, one of them would be dead and I admit freely that I wanted that person to be Jacob. However, I can't fathom how Martha wasn't convicted and sent to prison for murder. I think that she would have been better off if she had. The Colossal Downfall is heart-breaking!!! Once she betrayed Flossie, she would never be the same. And I think the death of Jacob sent Martha into a world that doesn't have pity on anybody. THE HOOD!! The place where problems are the norm and not having any is alien. I knew once Martha, to my complete shock, took the kids with her back there that trouble was on the horizon. Martha had given up and blamed the kids for her downfall. She used all the classic excuses to justify her actions and I am ashamed of her now. I began to look at Martha differently...I now can't stand her existance and want to quit reading all together. But I don't quit, I keep reading hoping that Maudine is gonna come to the rescue but sadly, she does not. Martha can thank her daughter for her life because I think prisonn is more preferable than the certain death she was headed for. I don't think prison really had a profound effect on Martha. She returned to the family just as broken as she had left. Her refussal to deal with her mental disablilities will hurt her more than she knows and LWC does a fantastic job of hammering that fact home. What a wonderful read. Thank you Lisa!!
