Today I am reviewing Thorns of an Innocent Soul by Barbara Watkins.
Blurb: A young woman tormented by her own demons is torn between wanting to love her mother and a need to hate her. Growing up in an abusive environment, she loses her self-confidence and her self-respect. Determined to have the life she has always wanted with the only man to ever love her, she realizes the choices she makes could change her destiny forever. And that one horrific night will decide her fate. Can the pain she has endured and inflicted upon others ever be released? Or is her soul lost forever? Only she has the power to remove the thorns from her innocent soul.
My Review: This is a short novella that delivers quite a message. Being ready to accept the consequences of ones actions. Sounds easy doesn’t it. However when your life has been shaped from childhood by an abusive mother and an absent father, are you responsible for your actions or is the one who shaped you? This is a story of just such a young woman who can’t see her own actions as the same as the mother who abused her. To late she will discover that you and only you are responsible for your own life and the impact you have on others. This is not my usual style of book so a little out of my comfort zone. I would recommend it to fans of this genre. It is well written and well edited. I give this book 4 stars.
