Margarete Cassalina, the author of the award-winning memoir, Beyond Breathing, and fictional novel See You At Sunset, has released her 3rd book: Embracing the Beauty in the Broken which has just received the Editor’s Choice Award.
“Embracing the Beauty in the Broken is an incredibly moving, inspirational book. The book’s premise is summarized well by the epigraph to the chapter “Obliteration”: ‘Strength isn’t about how much you can handle before you break; it’s about how much you can handle after you’re broken.’ That idea is something I will take with me long after today. Nobody escapes life without being broken in some way, and by courageously and vulnerably sharing your story, you are providing a beacon of hope. Kudos to you!” –Editorial Review Board

Embracing the Beauty and the Broken is more of a conversation with a friend than a book. In thirty powerful, raw and real, chapters of conflict and resolution, Margarete shares compelling stories of loss and overcoming obstacles with authenticity and humor. Each life-crisis shared provides a valuable message of choices, decisions, and the power of teachable life lessons. One lesson is that we are not defined by our past. You can learn how to push past years of self-doubt, unforeseen obstacles, and heartbreak by being encouraged to take action in your own life in the “Take it or leave it” sections of the book. At the end of each chapter, Margarete provides practical exercises and resources for anyone wanting a more in-depth exploration of their own personal growth and journey. This thought-provoking book inspires positive personal internal development by giving the reader hope, motivation, and the confidence to live their own best life.
