The kids spent last week getting over a stomach bug but now everyone is thankfully back to normal. I hope you are all having a great week so far!
Since this is the second week of December, here are two paragraphs from the Torn Asunder Bonus
Materials. I included a soundtrack with different songs I listened to while working on the story.
Every Rose Has Its Thorn – My husband is way more into classic rock than I am, but I found myself drawn to this song more so than just about any other I’ve included in the Torn Asunder soundtrack. The lyrics speak more about the kind of relationship where selfishness just gets in the way of love, but the chorus is so right-on when it comes to Hannah and Simon’s story. Their love is beautiful, like a rose, but it’s the beauty of it that makes it so painful when they are torn apart.
I also love this song because it's reminiscent of the cover image. I love how the cover designer included the rose, both as symbol of love and beauty, but also of pain as it’s stuck in the barbed wire of Camp 22’s fence. Like I said, the verses of this song might not speak to Hannah and Simon’s situation one-hundred percent, but I have hardly been able to get the chorus out of my head since I first started working on their story.(You might also enjoy this version from the soundtrack to the musical Rock of Ages)

Random Fact: I met my husband when I was 19. Of course, he wasn't my husband then. But you know what I mean.
