Tina Irene Lynch, a former staff member of the NYC Mayor’s Office, a mother, and a researcher of the criminal justice system in New York City, has completed her new book “Broken Soul”: the heartfelt story that touches on the extreme differences that can exist within the same family—her cousin, former Pres. Obama US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and her brother, a convicted murderer who served a life sentence in prison.

“My book tells the story of the struggle my brother, Chris, faced, as the youngest of our siblings, and how my mother's alcoholism, which nearly destroyed my entire family, set the stage for the difficulties that would follow him—and all of us—throughout our entire lives,” Tina Irene Lynch said of her work. “But this is about more than just my family. It is also about how Chris was let down by the local agencies, which should have come to his rescue during his time of need.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Tina Irene chronicles her brother transforming himself from being an elementary school drop out to becoming one of the first prisoners in the Nation to receive a bachelor’s degree while at the notorious Attica Correctional Facility. His efforts inspired her to better improve her own life. These accomplishments, however, were often thwarted by institutional racism—as when Tina Irene Lynch was passed over for a promotion in her position at City Hall for an unqualified white man who she had to train to be her supervisor. Still, the author never lost hope.

In addition to the narrative throughline that follows the author and her brother’s separate attempts to change the direction of their lives, the author takes time to celebrate those members of her family whose indefatigable spirit lead them to greatness. No matter how hard someone tries, however, the author goes on to say that her brother’s premature death prevented him from realizing his fullest potential.

Readers who wish to experience this moving family history that doubles as a social science study case can purchase “Broken Soul” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
