Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

To Mend a Broken Heart is a work of non fiction in the form of a personal and traumatic narrative, and was penned by author Myunique C. Green. Named after an emotive and popular song about restarting one’s life after feelings of total devastation, Green takes her readers along on a heartfelt personal journey which begins with a horrifying childhood event. After witnessing her own mother beaten to a bloody pulp, she is cast away and slowly develops an emotionless approach to life in order to mask the trauma. In this book, the raw emotion of past and present is all unveiled and unpacked with the hope of moving forward.

Any sufferer of childhood trauma will certainly be able to relate to the way that witnessing extreme abuse affects a person, especially when they are trying to live a peaceful life of their own as a functioning adult. Author Myunique C. Green is unafraid to fully vent the truth of her horrifying past, and in the catharsis of her writing, other readers are sure to find solace and an understanding of how they can unpack their own pain, and what it takes to really face and assess the damage done to us in childhood. What results is a superb narrative which is hard to read without a lump in your throat, but totally compelling for its emotional authenticity, and the fervent hope that a better tomorrow is around the corner. Overall, To Mend a Broken Heart is an important and compelling work of non-fiction.

Low self-esteem combined with an unstable home environment can truly make a dent in a person's foundation. Reading the memoir of Myunique C. Green, I could not help but feel the pain of the little girl who only wanted someone to accept her the way she was. To Mend a Broken Heart by Myunique C. Green is the most moving memoir I have ever come across. The author had a difficult childhood in which she witnessed things that no child should ever see. She only wanted someone to love her and understand her. If that emotional connection could be made by sex, then so be it. In her gullible state of mind, she went through many disturbing phases. Nevertheless, she did not hide such phases in order to gain sympathy from readers. Instead, she has filled the pages of this book with both good and bad memories.

The best part about reading To Mend a Broken Heart by Myunique C. Green is the fact that you are introduced to a newfound hope. However, I feel if the author had included some more details about her life, then that would have helped me in getting a clearer image of the people in her life. By writing about her tragedies, low self-esteem, and insecurities, the author has actually tried to reassure her readers that there is hope. She hit rock bottom but then she found solace in God. Her faith saved her, and it can actually save so many of us. I would recommend To Mend a Broken Heart by Myunique C. Green to readers who are considering the idea of giving up or who have lost their way.
