BRYAN HEALEY'S "SHATTERED WINGS" (A REVIEW)



"Shattered Wings," is the story of a homosexual man with a family and his struggle with alcoholism.  It shows how the stresses of daily life can drag you so far down that it's hard to claw your way back up.  After losing his job with a company he's served since his graduation from college, he tries hard to find another in the meantime filling in what he feels are the missing pieces of his life with alcohol. He keeps his lay-off a secret from his fiance' Charlie, and begins a downward spiral into an all-consuming darkness.  It is a riveting tale as you catch glimpses into John's past and begin to understand just how hard his life has been, where his only light moments have consisted of those shared with his fiance' and their adopted daughter, Cassie.  The ending is shocking! The author, Bryan Healey, has done an excellent job on this story as you can't help but to empathize with his main character. A very worthy read.
