Such a raw emotional read with a powerful message. This book is very eye opening to cutting, the effects of what War does to a soldier, and PTSD. These topics are all very heavy but prevalent in our society. I love how Andrea wove her story while informing the readers. Definitely go into this book knowing that it is a very emotional read but worth the tears you shed while reading.

I've always prided myself on my honesty when I review, and I'm going to do the same right now. I'm not going to lie. When I started reading the book, I thought Natalie was a selfish b*tch. I didn't like her  very much, how she treated Eric, because it seemed as if he truly loved her. Anyway... I didn't feel that  way after a while, as I started to understand the "why" of what she was feeling. The emotions within this book... George and Marion... Bill... Ryker. I really felt it, I mean FELT it. I could feel her pain, her fear, her gentle healing. And as I was reading toward the end, I kept thinking "who says you can't go home"... after all home is where the heart is and the heart is filled with love. Wonderful story and I'm looking forward to more reads from Ms. Randall.

Natalie is a wife. Natalie is a mother. Natalie is a cutter. Ummmm it should say Natalie is a hot mess. Girlfriend has more than her fair share of demons haunting her. Her broken marriage, the children she did not want, the degree she didn't get and the love that she lost. Ryker was the "one that got away". An unwanted pregnancy led her to a marriage to Eric she did not want and it seemed slowly over time her life was spiraling out of control until she made that cut. The cut she needed for control, for power, for the release of the pain and guilt trapped inside. This book helped me look in to the thought process of just why someone would cut. It makes you understand perfectly when she explained that some people drink, some people over eat, some do drugs, but Natalie cut and she believed it was the one thing she was good at. The story of Ryker, Natalie and Eric is a complicated one that jumps back and forth from past to present, but it is not confusing and flows nicely more like flashbacks. It was heavy subject matter, but well written. Sometimes we truly do have to listen to our hearts even when they are being shattered in to pieces.
