These Gentle Wounds Blog Tour & Review

THESE GENTLE WOUNDS by Helene Dunbar Release Date: May 8, 2014 Paperback, 312 pages Publisher: Flux Genre: Contemporary Fiction / Tough Issues / PTSD
Sometimes I wish I’d lost a leg or something. Everyone can understand that. They never get it when what’s been broken is inside your head. Five years after an unspeakable tragedy that changed him forever, Gordie Allen has made a new home with his half-brother Kevin. Their arrangement works since Kevin is the only person who can protect Gordie at school and keep him focused on getting his life back on track. But just when it seems like things are becoming normal, Gordie’s biological father comes back into the picture, demanding a place in his life. Now there’s nothing to stop Gordie from falling into a tailspin that could cost him everything—including his relationship with Sarah, the first girl he’s trusted with the truth. With his world spinning out of control, the only one who can help Gordie is himself . . . if he can find the strength to confront the past and take back his future.

*I was given this ARC in exchange for my honest book review.*
These Gentle Wounds was a soul touching story with real packed emotions.I really didn't know what to expect when i first started reading this book, but i was pleased and being touched very early on of reading. Dealing with issues of mental illness and sickness, i felt so much compassion, and i was educated as well. It really took me back to a time in my life. I was never abused as a child, but as an adult, and I felt a real connection to this book. Dunbar really evoked emotion, and the character Gordie was very memorable. Sarah was somewhat my hero in this book because she was everything Gordie needed in his life, especially after dealing with so much heartbreak so young in his life. I really enjoyed this book, even though at times I dropped a tear or two. Please go out and get this book.
I gave it *****5 chocolate stars.
