Fragments-the book


For Immediate Release

Headline:  “Fragments of a Shattered Soul Made Whole: a memoir” is a book about a woman who has a continual spiritual recovery from half a lifetime of abuse.  

Intro:  Even though she suffered: childhood incest, absent father, rape, foster care, addictions, lousy relationships, autoimmune disorders, alcoholism, and multiple miscarriages and marriages, she goes on to have a warm, heart-centered relationship with a loving husband for over twenty-nine years. She learns to develop nurturing relationships, a purpose-filled niche for herself, and beautiful hobbies, which eventually turn into her final career as an author/artist.  

Lyn Ayre is a word-wizard who can shape-shift even the most horrific life-incidents into palatable paragraphs. She then blends them into a story of an unbeatable spirit who strives to pull the pieces of her life into a coherent whole.  

Ms Ayre is always looking for the solution so is concentrating on the ‘Made Whole’ part of her book. To that end, she is creating free podcasts based on her lifetime of training and practice in energy healing. She is also converting her manuals into pdf books for sale on her website. 

Dateline: Released 26November2018, Coquitlam, BC, Canada 

Author Quote:  Lyn puts it best, “Writing has helped to weave all of these threads into the tapestry of me. I am unique, as we all are. There is not another like me. 

My story will resonate with many who struggle to overcome their demons and find a way to let their own light shine. I used the keys of willingness, determination, and faith to unlock my hidden spiritual potential. So can you.  

People are looking for peace and hope for their daily lives. They’re trying to understand something about the big picture, their Soul, and their Higher Power. This book offers a way to get in touch with that source of energy that has worked and continues to work for me through thick and thin.”

“This courageous story of personal and spiritual survival in the face of huge challenges is told in an intimate voice that holds nothing back from the reader.  In places harrowing to read, it is difficult to put down.” Eileen Kernaghan, author of nine books including ‘Sophie, in Shadow’  

This personal memoir spans the vast array of human emotions, as Lyn chronicles her life-long search for a deeper spiritual connection. Her story will resonate with those who long to find peace while faced with incredible challenges.” Pauline Neck, author of ‘Removing the Sting’ and ‘Discovering the Goodness of God’ 

“‘Fragments of a Shattered Soul Made Whole’ is a raw and honest memoir. Lyn Ayre walks her readers through her personal struggle with abuse, addiction, and health. This is one woman’s journey of healing and overcoming her fear.” Farida Somjee, author of ‘The Beggar’s Dance’ 

“A great read! The author relates the extraordinary and ordinary events of her life as if she is conversing with the reader. The result is uplifting. The message is that life is to be experienced on life’s terms-both good and bad, happy and sad.  Loved it!” Constance Bygrave, PhD, Assistant Professor, Fairleigh Dickinson University  

“‘Fragments of a Shattered Soul Made Whole’ is a compelling memoir that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. Lyn Ayre bravely shares about the traumatic experiences, which took her down a dark path, and the self-healing that saved her. This book not only helps the reader understand that they are not alone in whatever challenges they may be facing, but that they, too, can find a path to not only coping but healing and thriving. A powerful book that will give you strength.” Melanie Cossey, author of ‘A Peculiar Curiosity’  

I have just finished reading “Fragments of a Shattered Soul Made Whole”. I cried many tears while reading it. My God, this woman has been through so much stuff in her life, it is truly inspirational that she managed to come through all of it and be whole, sane, loving, giving, and alive. Lyn Ayre tells her own story of a life filled with tragedies and struggles and how she overcame them and was able to heal. Her story gave me hope. A very worthwhile read. Robin Leonard 

If I didn't know Lyn in person, I wouldn't believe that this was a true story. I would have said, “No, it's impossible for someone to have gone through so much and still come out of it with a positive outlook.” Lyn is a true survivor and “Fragments of a Shattered Soul Made Whole” is a testament to her inner strength. I couldn't put the book down, and read it in two nights. Erik D’Souza 

I finished it in a day and a half; couldn't put it down. Amazing. Gerry W.   

No story that I can recall has made me laugh, cry and feel my heart bloom with love over and over throughout the book. It's truly a heart-warming miracle to see where someone can come from and what they can then achieve spiritually. I treasured this memoir and in someways I'm certain there are parts to re-read to gain strength as certain tragedies or issue arise in my own life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever experienced a painful past and feels deep down there is the possibility to heal from it. Lyn eloquently shows us how. Suzy  

This book is full of hope and joy, and shows a clear-cut path to wellness. There are a lot of great tips to survivors of assault, addiction, and chronic illness. Alana B  

This is a great book for anyone who is or has been dealing with these difficult subjects. Lyn Ayre has written about her troubled childhood and early life and has come out the other end well adjusted. I look forward to her next book. Valerie S
