Item Description...
A true story of God's love and faithfulness for the broken and abused.
For years I wanted to write the story of the abuse that my father suffered at the hands of his father, but he was always a little concerned that he may offend some family members with the truth of his terrible story. Finally, at the age of 86 and with the encouragement of his living siblings, he told the whole story of how as a child, he had been broken physically, emotionally and mentally and how that abuse led him into a life of crime. He told of the miraculous way that he found Christ and how he had to serve prison time when he paid restitution. This story is truly amazing. God in his loving kindness can fix and restore, even a broken boy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Broken Boy, reviewed by Hans Kasdorf  Feb 6, 2009
The title says it well, but does not tell it all. This book by Linda Gillard is a true story transcribed from a tape as told by her father, the seventh of fourteen children. The family lived in abject poverty on a farm in Saskatchewan, Canada, where Peter grew up in the 1920s and '30s.

Not only that. In his childhood and youth Peter endured incredible verbal, psychological, and physical abuse at the hands of his own father. In reading the book, I was reminded of Schiller's lines which in translation go like this: "A startled lion is dangerous; pernicious is a tiger's tooth. Yet more beastly and most cruel is a man as untamed brute." Such was Peter's father.

My wife and I have had the privilege of getting to know Peter and his wife Marie, a truly wonderful couple with a genuine spirit of hospitality enhanced by a delightful sense of humor. That is the other side of the story, showing how "the broken boy's" inner resilience kept him from becoming a victim of circumstances. Instead, with the help of God, he turned his life around to become a self-educated watchmaker, a successful business man, and a skilled hand engraver, a rare art in which he still engages at eighty-seven.

I can only hope that the untold part about the healing and mending of the broken boy's life will yet be told in a subsequent volume. But even in its present format the book is inspiring and encouraging; it is to be highly recommended, especially to persons who got a raw deal in life.
