About the Book

Nelson Riverdale, author of Across the Sands of Time, is back with his second book, Poems from a Broken Heart, a true story of his wife, Merlene Ann Martin, and his 30-year marriage to her. Nelson and Merlene knew of each other from Love Gospel Assembly, the Bronx church in NY they attended, but in a congregation of well over 350 people, the two never connected. It wasn't until he unexpectedly saw her at a Christian singles party that their relationship blossomed, and three years later, they were married. In his book, Poems of a Broken Heart, Nelson Riverdale recounts his life with Merlene, her many health issues, and her ultimate passing. In this intimately written story, the author shares his unending love for his wife through the dozens of poems he personally penned. He also opens up about the monstrous grief that brought him into a deep, dark valley of depression, which he called the “death zone.” Poems of a Broken Heart is the extraordinary story of a wonderful marriage that ended suddenly but continues on through the many heartfelt poems written by Nelson Riverdale. ———————— Advance Praise for Poem from a Broken Heart “A journey through grief much like my own when I was hanging from a thread.” —LGA Minister Larry Galloway, widower “Nelson Riverdale’s up-close and deeply personal journey into the depth of grief is a must-read for pastors, medical professionals, educators, life coaches, and those who are grieving. A literary anointing oil for recovery.” —Pastor Chelli Jackson, former Equity SAG-AFTRA professional performer, director of the audiovisual department & LGA Church Administrator
