Book Review: Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani

When their father falls inexplicably into a coma, three sisters and their mother reunite after the youngest has been estranged for years. As they reconnect suppressed memories of abuse emerge as do deep feelings of hurt and betrayal, but the effects of the past are behind what causes the unravelling of their carefully constructed present.

A deeply moving account of the aftermath of physical and emotional abuse and its far-reaching effects when not dealt with. Predictable the events maybe in the book but the depth of understanding of the emotionally damaged mind is what surprised me the most. No character in this novel is perfect and the women abused have all dealt with the damage inflicted on them in different ways. There are some hard to read events in this book as abuse is a difficult subject to explore, but in my opinion the author tackled some complex non-textbook psychology and I found the book very moving.

Hard to read in terms of subject matter, but beautifully written and complex. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
