Nearly one in two Americans has a chronic medical condition. A staggering 96% of them show no outward signs of their illness. For those experiencing invisible illness relief is marginal at best, and, currently, there are no cures.
Thelma Giomi’s eye-opening novel, Shatter My Heart, leads us on the emotionally charged journey of a brilliant psychologist and those who love her. Lauren, Ian, Nikki, and Paul take the reader on a roller coaster of frustration, disappointment, and, ultimately, hope.
Shattered by illness, loss, infidelity and the demands of a commitment to each other, these four friends, individually and together, emerge with poise and compassion to be the heroes of their own lives.
This novel challenges us with important questions about the brutal reality of medical thoughtlessness, the nature of relationships and the true meaning of healing.
This is Thelma Giomi’s fifth book and first literary novel. About writing, Thelma says, “Writing a book is sheer joy, an adventure of discovery. You pour your passion, your message, your love of your characters and their lives into an experience of writing that takes you on an unexpected journey.”
Consistent with her previous works, Dr. Giomi draws on her personal experience, medical expertise, and extensive research. Diagnosed at an early age with systemic lupus she extracts from her years as a psychologist, her work with others who wrestle with invisible illnesses and time spent as a family caregiver.
Shatter My Heart is an emotionally engaging and passionately written statement of her depth of understanding and compassion for those who long for answers and the compassionate allies in their lives.
