I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for a fair and honest review
Published: July 7, 2015
Number of pages: 208
Genre: Christian Fiction
A crumbling statue. A torn tapestry. A discolored painting.
Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and hopefully shattered—perhaps once thought beyond repair. But what about us? What of the wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live?
In Tattered and Mended, readers walk through a gallery of reclaimed and restored art as well as broken and restored lives of those who have gone before us. With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Cynthia Ruchti shows how even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.
What did I think of this story
I was not sure what to expect when I first got this book to read. I have to say I did enjoy it. I liked how the author gives you ways to heal yourself by using antiques from your family and their historical significance to help in this process. I think this is a good book for both adults and young adults alike to help you through a tough time and to know that all can be mended and fixed. Her writing style seemed to flow for me making this book very easy and interesting to read.
What did I think of the cover
I love this cover. I like the old feeling it gives you and makes you want to dive right into the book to see the old stories it has to tell
