Fractured: My Journey Back From Death and the Lessons I've Learned Along The Way by Elizabeth Antonucci is a compelling memoir that explores the anatomy of fear and one woman’s courageous journey to wholeness. Elizabeth’s life may have seemed wonderful to those who weren’t close to her — not that she had many people to whom she permitted proximity — a wonderful woman with an artistic soul, but one threatened by a darkness within that could destroy her life. But when she comes to the brink of death, lying in a Utah hospital with everyone giving up hope of recovery, she makes the decision to travel the path towards wholeness, to embrace herself, and to choose the path she’s always wanted to walk. This is an inspiring story that teaches readers that they have the miraculous power to transform their lives in the conscious decisions they make.
The author begins this wonderful narrative with a letter to the reader in which she makes a powerful revelation: “I don’t have many true fears in life. People who know me know I’m terrified of bridges and those grated things in the sidewalk.” In the first chapter, they learn about her blossoming skills in the theater and an accident in which the car she was in flipped and rolled seven times and she was ejected through the sunroof, landing fifty feet from the car. As the story moves on, the reader is drawn irresistibly into the inner world of the protagonist’s heart, her brokenness, hurts, and fears, a world that reflects a lot of the despair that cripples humanity. Then she leads them into the dramatic turn in her life. Elizabeth Antonucci writes with grace and confidence, and readers will love the intensity of the emotions described in this book, the insights, and the wonderful lessons the author shares. Fractured: My Journey Back From Death and the Lessons I've Learned Along The Way is a powerful call to readers to wake up and live their lives with purpose and without fear.
