Christina Maria Martinez is the author of “Shattered Pieces Everywhere: How I Found True Joy in My Most Broken Moments”. Christina’s memoir will resonate with many, if not all, women. In sharing the struggles of childhood and youth touched by domestic violence, substance abuse, foster care and much moving across the country, many will identify with Christina. When she met the love of her life and was planning her wedding, she was involved in a serious car crash and faced a major crisis. Her face was badly scarred, and she felt live was not worth living. But Toman stayed by her side, and she began her healing journey, one that she shares honestly and in so doing provides a path for healing for any of us.
