A Prayer For The Broken by Mark Tilbury

The Blurb:

They promised the boy he’d be safe – they lied!

When eleven-year-old John McCormack’s mother is murdered, he is placed in the care of Pastor Ian Stone and his family. Clearwater House is a far cry from the squalid flats he’s been used to, but John soon learns that Pastor Stone’s perverted form of religion is anything but compassionate. As Stone attempts to purify John’s soul of “dangerous levels of toxicity”, it becomes increasingly clear he’s at the mercy of a madman. Who can John talk to when no one wants to listen? Who can he trust when all he knows is betrayal? A Prayer for the Broken is the story of one child’s desperate fight to escape a sadistic killer who has complete control over him

Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised. After being widowed and raising his two daughters, Mark finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused. He's always had a keen interest in writing, and is extremely proud to have had seven novels published by Bloodhound Books. He's also recently self-published, The Last One To See Her. When he's not writing, Mark can be found playing guitar, reading and walking. Mark sends out e-mail newsletters once a month to keep readers updated with news and offering them chances to win exclusive prizes. You can sign up here:

My Review:

I've said this before, and I dare say I'll say it again, Tilbury just gets better and better. A Prayer For the Unbroken is undoubtably even betterer. I've had to invent a new word, betterer, to illustrate the originality of this dark psychological thriller that sets it apart from most of the others.

Eleven-year-old John McCormack having recently been orphaned after his mother had been murdered was finally placed with Pastor Ian Stone, after a short time in foster care. However, it became immediately apparent that his new forever home, does not support the spirit of christian kindness, indeed it's the exact polar opposite, and it was only going to get worse.

If you believe reading is just a sedentary pastime, try reading this one without getting out of breath.
