Owning up to your mistakes doesn't mean you won’t make more...especially when the right woman is involved.
Hindsight is 20/20A lot of people ensured Aidy’s future was filled with endless possibility.
She never saw the guy like me—who belonged behind bars—coming.
So, I’m going to make sure he pays… And in the meantime, do whatever it takes for Aidy to smile again.
There’s no doubt she makes my meaningless existence worthwhile.
If I had a shred of decency, I’d have left it alone.
Because if Aidy’s determined to stand alongside me, it will destroy her perfectly planned out life.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Shred of Decency is my first book from Jody Kaye and it is heavy. But not in a bad way. Aidy and Morgan's story tackled some tough subjects.
I admired Aidy. She had this inner strength that just wouldn't quit. She battled her way out of the downward spiral her life became. It didn't hurt that she had an awesome support system around her. Including Morgan. A man who lived through his own hell. Who was determined to be more than the mistakes of his past.
There was no magic aha moment when they first met but there was comfort. Something neither had felt for quite some time. I liked the ease they had with each other. How they didn't have to hide their struggles. And little by little that acceptance let them start to laugh again.
My favorite thing about Aidy and Morgan's journey was how they both handled their situation with grace and dignity. They were more than what they had endured. And they used their pain, turned it into purpose and let it give them the power to own their future. Together.
About the Author
Jody's husband asked what she'd been doing all day. After five years she finally confessed, "When no one is around, I write."
Okay, it was more like it was more like a bunch of stammering and trying to get out of saying a thing. Jody's a writer. You want it pretty. Let's compromise.
"Just finish one," he said, challenging her to complete a story and share it. Little did he know that those words of encouragement meant they’d return from a family vacation with a wild and defiant set of quintuplets stumbling their way through life. Wasn’t raising their three sons enough?
A native of nowhere, Jody settled in New England for 17 years before agreeing to uproot her brood of boys and move to North Carolina. She spends most of her time reading, writing, and hoping that her ravenous children haven’t eaten all the ingredients before she cooks dinner.
