Picking Up the Pieces: Recovering from Broken Relationships by Lou Priolo




When a romantic relationship is torn apart, it can wreak havoc in the lives and emotions of everyone involved. The pain is all the worse if you were not the one who wanted the relationship to end.

You may wonder, “Will the ache in my heart ever go away?” The answer, says Lou Priolo, is yes.

You can find relief even when you feel forsaken, because true healing comes from the One who will never forsake you. If you are hurting after a broken relationship, here is much-needed counsel and biblical guidance to lead you away from heartache and into a healthier, happier, and holier relationship with Christ.
