Some people spend their entire life running. They might be running towards something or as fast as they can in the opposite direction. At times, they are running with no destination in sight because it has been happening for so long that it just becomes a part of who they are. Kelly Sloan has been running since the day she returned home from school to discover an otherwise normal day would be the beginning of this race she never intended to run. It all started when she instinctively distanced herself from the emotionally catatonic mother who was there to greet her on that fateful day and self preservation forced her to keep that same distance in so many other areas of her life. The exception to this has always been Julian. He is her best friend’s brother - a constant and stable presence since the day they met. But life is unpredictable and no matter how fast you run, it has a way of catching up with you... A phone call delivering devastating news on the heels of an unexpected confession from Julian pushes Kelly to make desperate and irrational decisions. Decisions that cannot be erased but must be dealt with in a time when her world is coming unraveled. She discovers there is more to her mother’s story than she ever knew or attempted to understand. Those surprising revelations teach Kelly lessons about her own life and relationships and force her to make a choice - keep running, which will alienate the most important person in her life and never allow healing in the broken relationship with her mother, or stop and confront the pain and regret that is holding her back from living life to its fullest. Sweetly Broken is an imperfect love story between a man and a woman and a mother and her daughter walking through the not so fairytale realities of life, family, and love.
