Please welcome, Michael J. Sullivan as he shares his personal journey that inspired his novel, Necessary Heartbreak: A Novel of Faith and Forgiveness.
At the end of Michael’s post, I have written my review of Necessary Heartbreak: A Novel of Faith and Forgiveness.
It’s a poignant, memorable and inspirational read.
I highly recommend this book for all ages. This book would make a great family read as it opens the lines of communication for a good discussion, especially for book clubs.
I remember vividly when I came close to my breaking point. My unwashed hair was grimy and my clothes smelled from having been worn for three straight weeks. I buried my unshaven face into my jacket as I stepped onto the E train, clinging to my green garbage bag of belongings. It was holiday time and the train was packed but it was my home at night during the winter of 1983-84. I was exhausted from walking so much, searching for a job. A seat opened up between two passengers and I sat down. A well-dressed woman gave me “the look.”
And I wrote.
