Exposing and revealing, soul searching and revelations are in the heart Of MaryScarlett’s gripping book about her daughter’s overdose and their paths to recovery. So I don’t butcher the truth I am quoting: “Goddess, grant me the serenity to accept how fucked up this is Give me strength to face myself in the mirror, the courage to swallow my pride, and a glass of champagne to wash it all down” After her 18 year old daughter survives a heroin overdose, which caught her by complete surprise, MaryScarlett Amaris tries everything, including a fearless examination of her own life and mores, to answer the haunting question: why did this happen? Funny, poignant, honest, and wise, Amaris both bears and heals her soul in the hope that no one who experiences a loved one’s addiction will ever feel too angry, too ridiculous, or too alone.”
Once I started reading the book I couldn’t put it down – it’s brutally honest, kicked me in the stomach, made me laugh out loud and put life in a new perceptive. It’s an awesome read, and you can so easily find it by following this link to Lulu’s site (or you can click on the photo below – it’s fancy that way…)
I got the hard copy book in the mail yesterday – I felt like Christmas Morning…. Thank you MaryScarlett for trusting me with your baby – I was proud to be part of your process, and delighted to have you as a friend.
