About The Author: 

D.E. Haggerty was born and raised in Wisconsin but thinks she’s a European. After spending her senior year of high school in Germany, she developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured. After high school she returned to the U.S. to go to college ending up with a Bachelor’s degree in History at the tender age of 20 while still managing to spend time bouncing back and forth to Europe during her vacations. Unable to find a job after college and still suffering from wanderlust, she joined the U.S. Army as a Military Policewoman for 5 years. While stationed in Heidelberg, Germany, she met her future husband, a flying Dutchman. After being given her freedom from the Army, she went off to law school. She finished law school and moved to the Netherlands with her husband and became a commercial lawyer for more than a decade.

 During a six month break from the lawyering world, she wrote her first book, Unforeseen Consequences. Although she finished the book, she went back to the law until she could no longer take it and upped stakes and moved to Germany to start a B&B. Three years after starting the B&B, she got the itch and decided to pull the manuscript for Unforeseen Consequences out of the attic and get it published as an e-book. Deciding that she may have indeed finally found what she wanted to do with her life, she went on to write Buried Appearances. After moving to Istanbul, she started on Life: Discarded , her third book. Between tennis, running, traveling, singing off tune and reading books like they are going out of style, she writes articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, reviews other indie authors’ books, writes a blog about whatever comes to mind and is working on her fourth book.

**MY REVIEW**
I've watched numerous documentaries on abuse, read a variety of books- but Life Discarded is, by far, the best!

While I didn't expect much going in, and while it wasn't easy getting used to the third person narration, there was a tempo about the book, something that kept you going, without you actually noticing- and I really liked that! (Okay, I probably know that it didn't make any sense, but if you read it, you'll know what I mean)

What I LOVED most about the book was the fact that D. E. Haggerty didn't rush into distancing Morgan from her friends and family- but showed us that it was a slow process, and that even Morgan herself didn't realise it, until it was too late!

I would have also loved more, ditto to what a goodreads reviewer said, more domination from Daniel (just to make it more interesting)

All in all, a book I will definitely be picking up again!

  1. Thank you for hosting my blog tour today and reading my book. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Is there anyway I could convince you to post the review on Amazon and Goodreads as well (an indie writer needs all the help she can get :-) Thanks again. Bloggers (and especially book bloggers) are AWESOME!
