The life Brooke has worked so hard to build is crumbling in his hands in the face of painful memories and past abuse, and his confidence is withering. In El Dorado Springs, where his nightmares come to life, Brooke desperately seeks closure life doesn’t offer. Brooke must find value in himself, in his marriage, and in the world around him – and create the hope and perseverance to keep his past from swallowing him whole.
The Shattered Door hit me deep inside when I read originally read it and the audio version had a similar affect. It’s a deeply emotional tale that I believed included a lot of the author’s soul.
Brandilyn’s review of the book is here: http://www.prismbookalliance.com/2014/03/5-for-the-shattered-door-by-brandon-witt-review-by-brandilyn/
I didn’t love it as much as Brandilyn but I still enjoyed it a great deal. I think the plotting is bit off and was interested in Brooke’s life in El Dorado then his life before he came home. Early parts of the book dragged for me, but I was enthralled once Brooke came home.
The book deals with tough subjects such as homosexuality in religion and parental abuse but Witt does an amazing job with the issues. He has a stellar skill that is displayed here and it is amazing. Brooke is a unique character and I loved reading about everything he had to deal with. I also loved Brooke’s family members, especially Donny. The supporting cast was amazing.
Andrew McFerrin did an amazing job nailing Brooke’s inner voice. I felt I was on the journey right beside Brooke the entire time.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
