They promised him he’d be safe – they lied!

When eleven-year-old John McCormack’s mother is murdered, he is placed in the care of Pastor Ian Stone and his family. Clearwater House is a far cry from the squalid flats he’s been used to, but John soon learns that Pastor Stone’s perverted form of religion is anything but compassionate. As Stone attempts to purify John’s soul of “dangerous levels of toxicity”, it becomes increasingly clear that he’s at the mercy of a madman.

Who can John tell when no one wants to listen?

Who can he trust when all he knows is betrayal?

A Prayer for the Broken is a story of loss, pain, and one child’s fight to escape a sadistic killer who has complete control of him.

My Thoughts

Well the author truly lived up to his moniker of TwistedTilbury. This book is the most twisted of all of his books.

This book deals with harsh issues of child abuse and neglect so if you are triggered by this type of item this won’t be for you. Also it is very heavily steeped in religion but perverted.

I loved this book but at some points I almost had to throw the book down as I was horrified by what happened in the book. It was a great study in psychology and how nature and nurture are both used.

This author has amazing skills and tackles the tough issues. He also makes things very twisted as well showing what can happen when somone has been cultivated.

I am awe of this book and while I know it won’t be for most it is an amazing show of psychology and how things can affect us.
