Book Blitz
Shards of My Heart
Nicole Andrews Moore 
 ~ Synopsis ~
When I took the vows for better or worse, I meant them. Then I started to wonder if there was a limit as to how much worse I was supposed to endure. Am I supposed to stay if worse means that me and my daughter are in danger? What if the worse was because of a mental illness? When is enough simply too much?

This is a different kind of love story. Read Nina’s journals for a tale of hope, strength of spirit, and unconditional love.

~Excerpt ~
Though I had never done this before, it was clear what needed to be done.  Clicking on the camera icon, I started to snap pictures of the damage as I made my way to the bedroom to pack. There was even a photo of the crib tipped over before he came out of the bathroom and righted it.
Shane: Why are you still here?  Leave.  Get. Out.  Right. Now.
Walking to my closet, I pulled out two suitcases, one at a time.  I hadn’t set Kylie down for the last hour.  She was starting to feel heavy, but I ignored the pain.  I needed her safe and at the moment, that safety was only guaranteed in my arms.  Shane was too erratic.  This…was not the man I had married.  This…was not the man I dated and fell in love with.  That Shane, I never wanted to live without.  This man was a stranger and I had no trouble leaving him.
When he saw the second suitcase come out, he stiffened.  Opening Kylie’s drawers, I started loading her belongings into the waiting bag.  It wouldn’t take but a moment to get her clothes together; it was the medical supplies that would be so time consuming.
Shane: You aren’t taking my daughter.
me: Well, I’m not leaving her with you.
Shane: She’s my only child.
me: You can’t take care of her.  You can’t even take care of yourself right now.
Shane: Just how do you expect to take care of her?
It wouldn’t end.  As long as I kept responding, he would continue arguing with me.  I had no energy for that.  There were too many other concerns at the moment.
Shane: If you want to take her, you have to call the police.
Pausing, I waited for him to talk sense.  It wasn’t happening.  Finally, I caved and spoke.  There was an unspoken rule about involving the police.  I knew it.  He had made it.  Calling the police raised everything to the next level.  These things were handled in house, behind closed doors, even if many of those doors had holes.
