    1. In "Coming Unglued," Norma Budden's heart-tugging page-turner about emotional and physical abuse, a young woman named Kelly seeks fulfillment while trying to meet her obligations to family, friends, and God under horrific circumstances: raising a child conceived during rape.Budden fully explores the gray areas of Kelly's circumstance--a situation stigmatized by a society inclined to see black or white. Along the way, Kelly discovers joy where she most expects to find grief, and heartache when sh [...]

    2. Many cannot imagine what it is like to be raped and/or then abused by a husband who you thought would cherish you, in spite of everything that has happened in your life. I can't say I "enjoyed" the story, but it certainly shook me up.Kelly, alone after a brutal rape and pregnant, decides to keep her child. Cast aside by her family and the boyfriend who she thought loved her enough to stand by her, Kelly makes a life for herself and her daughter. Imagine her amazement when she is approached by th [...]

    3. 4.5 starsI really enjoyed this book, “Coming Unglued: A Mother’s Journey into Hell,” by Norma Budden, even though “enjoyed’ feels like sort of a strange descriptor considering all that happens here. I thought it was excellently written (a few minor cases of repetition and slow pacing but nothing too major). It is a quick read, one I finished in the course of an afternoon/evening. Some of the subject matter is dark and kind of depressing, but it is similar to real life in that way, and [...]

    4. Okay just a fair warning… when starting this book make sure you don’t have anywhere you need to be or anything you need to do because you won’t want to stop reading until you’ve finished it all!! Trust me on this! It is such a wonderfully addictive novel, and I love how Norma Budden writes… it all felt so believable and authentic, intimate, like a close friend was telling me this really amazing, beautiful, horrible, emotional, tragic story that I didn’t want to stop listening to. Lik [...]

    5. "Coming Unglued…” is the first book I’ve read from this talented author Norma Budden, but I hope it’s not the last! The way this book was written is different from many I’ve read before, but it totally hooked me right from the beginning and kept my attention throughout. It was horrifying, inspiring, sad, dark, sweet, deep, tragic… I thought the storyline and the character development - especially with Kelly - to be very well done and thought out. I feel like this level of emotional c [...]

    6. This book was very difficult to read given the subject matter, but it definitely was a story that stayed with me. I found myself thinking about the characters and wondering what was going to happen even when I wasn't reading itat to me, is the sign of a really great book! I hate to say I enjoyed reading it on one hand because of the terrible events that occurred, but speaking strictly from the point of how captivating and interesting it was, I can say that I enjoyed reading this book and had a h [...]

    7. This book takes a very difficult life circumstance and tells the story in a tasteful way. I think this book can be a great source of encouragement to other women that find themselves in the same circumstance that they can get out.

    8. This heart-stopping story covers courage in its strongest form.The author touches on most people's nightmare, but somehow it is ok in the end. This woman's determination to survive is remarkable and the story so well written.The characters are well described, and the story keeps you gripped. The relationship between attacker and victim, a mother's love and the effects of friendship without ties, is shown throughout.I can't say a good read as such, but once you start you will just keep reading un [...]

    9. lately I’ve been in a rut of putting down books and not picking them up again because I lost interest at one point and just never continued. This was definitely not the case with this book, “Coming Unglued” by Norma Budden. From the very beginning the story moved seamlessly from one page to the next, and was unpredictable enough to make me just *have* to see what would happen next. Not formulaic or cookie-cutter at all. Even though there are plenty of “familiar elements” necessary for [...]

    10. I was offered a chance to read this book. I'm going to call it a journal or chronicle of a woman's struggle through the darkest moments in a her life, the choices one makes and the faith that it takes to make them. Those small acts of redemption and those moments of being plunged back into the pit of hell. I had to put the book down twice, just to digest what I had read. Then the afterthoughts about this story and the ripples it casts.I thought in lieu of recapping the story as everyone has done [...]

    11. POWERFUL!!!Not every reader get a chance to truly see the brilliance and emotions of authors. This book reveals both.Norma Budden will take you down a harrowing relationship of abuse and metal torture. Is this a true story as in non-fiction? No. She clarifys that at the beginning, but in reality, most of what the reader is about to travel on is a surreal travel through life. I would caution readers that this book will hit home very hard, for who those who have endured the horrific events of abus [...]

    12. I've been following Budden's writing and have been anticipating the release of Coming Unglued: A Mother's Journey into Hell since it's conception. Initially, it was going to chronicle my life of abuse. Consulting with Budden a few weeks into the project, it became evident people were beginning to share their own nightmarish stories with her. Coupled with Budden's inside knowledge of a number of people enduring abuse, we agreed that she would tell the story to include not only my experiences but [...]

    14. This book left tears in my eyes long after I finished reading. Domestic violence is a tragic reality in our society today and knowing that this book was inspired by true events made the story that much more difficult to read.The story explores the life of one young woman who suffers the life-altering experience of rape at a young age. But Kelly has a deep, inner well of strength and faith to draw from to help her survive. A few weeks later, when she discovers she is pregnant with her rapist's ch [...]

    15. Not an easy book to read, due to the serious nature of the issues being explored. Yet I found myself reading it at the speed of lightning. I just had to find out what came next. I'm sure this book will strike a chord in many of us: those who have personally experienced domestic violence, and those who have been close to someone who is a victim of domestic violence. Through the character of Kelly, who at first is extremely naive, and seems to get friendly with men before even getting to properly [...]

    16. I've been in several social media circles with Ms. Budden and I watched this book grow from its conception until it was delivered for all to read. The story is told in first person - fictional autobiography - via Ms. Budden's main character, Kelly. Kelly shares many traumatic events in her relatively young life.Coming Unglued: A Mother's Journey into Hell deals with a harsh subject in overall delicate way. I do not normally read books that have abuse as the subject matter. Having read An Affair [...]

    17. this novel was quite a change of pace for me, as I normally gravitate towards more lighthearted fantasy/paranormal romance, but this was one powerful tale that I couldn’t put down. Norma Budden writes from the heart and it is impossible to read this and remain unaffected. This is a story of real life, of things that may be uncomfortable to talk about and painfully horrific to endure, but this book shows that there is a way through it. I don’t rehash plot lines (that is what the book descript [...]

    18. "Coming Unglued: A Mother’s Journey into Hell” by Norma Budden is exactly what the title implies, and then some. It starts off with some powerful backstory to set the scene and ground the reader in Kelly’s world, and perspective. The author does a wonderfully convincing job of creating a believable background, in terms of Kelly's tragic, challenging circumstances -which enables the rest of the plot to unfold in an organic, yet powerful manner. This book does touch on some very heavy subjec [...]

    19. This is a very disturbing subject at the best of times. The author writes Kelly's story in the first person, and what is quite apparent is an almost childlike faith and outlook on life. I can't say too much as I don't want to spoil the book for anyone else, but I doubt I would be able to forgive in the manner she did, with grace. This is a different sort of story, it's quite unsettling, but worth the read. Please note, I requested a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    20. This is a hard book to read if you were ever an abused woman. On the other hand it leaves you feeling empowered if you survived and moved forward. A lot of these stories rang true to me and brought back some bad memories. I had quite a few good cries and talks with myself. I love the way Norma puts her character's in writing. You feel like you are right there watching it all go down. Very detailed about the feelings from a woman's perspective and why they stay in abuse and how it holds them tigh [...]
