An Editorial Review of “Remedy for a Broken Angel” by Toni Ann Johnson

2016-12-17T12:15:42+00:00By |

Remedy for a Broken Angel is an extraordinary novel about digging out from years of suppression to find forgiveness and to forgive. Johnson deftly exposes the many faces of patterns of abuse and how the “unseen hand” perpetuates and feeds the demons within in this literary work of contemporary women’s fiction. Johnson’s professional experience in dance, music, film, and stage production lends authenticity to the sonorous background and subtext of the work.
