Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Broken, Tales of a Titanium Cowgirl by Michelle R. Scully is an inspirational story of a woman who rose up from the ashes of her dreams to finally conquer them. I found Michelle’s story emotional yet very motivational. While what happened to Michelle was tragic, I was inspired by how she did not let her injury hold her back from doing what she loved best. The way she resisted, fought and basically clawed her way back into the saddle displayed great courage and showed how strong she is.

This is the story of Michelle, a woman who loved horse riding and loved nature. However, when she had a terrible riding accident in which she broke her back, the doctors told her that it would take months before she could become her own person again. Rebuilding herself was not easy, yet it was something that she would not back off from. Michelle knew that if she wanted to get her life back on track, she had to fight her fears and get back into horse riding. However, she had no idea that by fighting her fears, she would gain so much more than just her courage and her dignity.

What I loved most about this book is that Michelle held nothing back when she was talking about her recovery or her emotional turmoil. She laid it all bare for the reader to digest and understand what she went through. Because of this, the story has a raw emotion that makes the reader feel connected to Michelle. I felt as if I knew Michelle and understood her. This is a wonderful tale of fighting, determination and remaining true to oneself. Perhaps, this is one of the best non-fiction books I have read this year! Inspirational and motivational!
