What Becomes of the Brokenhearted: A Memoir


What Becomes of the Brokenhearted: A Memoir Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“In many ways writing saved my life. Its my hope that sharing my experience will give hope to others who are learning to deal with their “difference.” I want them to know they dont have to live their lives in a permanent “dont ask, dont tell” existence. Truth is a powerful tool.

“But my hope for this book doesnt stop there. I think there is a message here for anyone who has ever suffered from a lack of self-esteem, felt the pain of loneliness, or sought love in all the wrong places. The lessons I have learned are not limited to race, gender, or sexual orientation. Anyone can learn from my journey. Anyone can overcome a broken heart.”--E. Lynn Harris
