Fragments of a Shattered Soul Made Whole
a memoir
by Lyn E. Ayre

Lyn’s story begins in 1951 in western Canada. Though her early years are filled with music and love, she is lonely. Her beloved father, a musician, is often on tour living his own unimpeded life while the rest of his family struggles daily with poverty and dodging the rent collectors. This chaos causes Lyn, a very sensitive young girl, to begin to fragment. Nowhere can she find solid ground. The main characters in her life either leave or die. Then, in 1964, while walking home from school, she is brutally raped, causing a severe break in her spirit. With her inner being shattered, she over-indulges in food, alcohol, and drugs to dull the pain. Over time, she withstands a string of abusive experiences and relationships that always end in heartbreak. Read about the tragedy of the four miscarriages she endures, the attempts at suicide, and several devastating medical diagnoses. Then, read on to find out how her inner strength, determination, and a deep spiritual belief in a Divine Force she simply calls LOVE, helps her to heal. Though faced with the on-going challenges of her systemic illnesses, Lyn ultimately triumphs to live a life of joy, peace, and service to others. The keys of faith and willingness unlock the door and ultimately make her whole.

“Fragments is a compelling memoir that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. Lyn Ayre bravely shares these traumatic experiences. A powerful book that will give you strength.” -- Melanie Cossey, author of ‘A Peculiar Curiosity’
