In Broken Places by Michèle Phoenix

I recently discovered this author and have loved reading her books.  She was an MK and TCK and many of her experiences of growing up overseas, as well as living there as an adult, are reflected in her writing.  This particular book is about a single woman who has been left guardianship of a young child, and for reasons which become clear as the novel progresses, decides to move to Germany and teach at a missionary school. As she raises the little girl she thinks back often to the abuse she suffered herself and learns what it means to have hope for the future.
