About the book:
Tattered and Mended: The Art of Healing the Wounded Soul (Abingdon, July 2015)
A crumbling statue. A torn tapestry. A discolored painting.
Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and hopefully shattered---perhaps once thought beyond repair. But what about us? What of the wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live?
In Tattered and Mended, readers walk through a gallery of reclaimed and restored art as well as broken and restored lives of those who have gone before us. With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Cynthia Ruchti shows how even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.

This is a great read that will touch your heart and stay with you long after you read it. Each of us are broken, pieces of us, parts of us, but this does not mean we are beyond repair, beyond hope. Cynthia shares how various items are repaired and the time and work that goes into this; much the same way that God heals each of us if we allow Him to. It is so easy to accept how things are and not try to work on things or make them better; Cynthia does an incredible job with sharing her heart and thoughts and sharing how our wounded souls and spirits can be healed if we want.
