Review:

"Recovering Life" is the moving story of a very special couple who fought side by side against the odds to achieve and preserve a remarkable comeback against dependency and illness. Not only do Charisse and Darryl show us the heartwarming strength of their own relationship, but they also teach us that we can all learn from our mistakes and preserve the things in life which are truly worthwhile. This book is a great read about two fine young people. -- George M. Steinbrenner

"Recovering Life" touched me deeply. It makes a powerful case for why no one ever has the right to give up - on himself, on another person, or on God. Told with honesty and courage, the Strawberrys' story shows how paryer's strength really can move mountains. It encourages each of us to seek purpose in life. I highly recommend this book. -- Johann Christoph Arnold, author,

Charisse and Darrly show their readers that the only true way through the daily struggles that occur in every life lies in letting go and giving control to God. I have been blessed to be a witness to their strength, faith, and love. -- Andy Pettitte, pitcher, New York Yankees

Reading this beautiful book was like having a visit with Charisse and Darryl in their living room. My respect for their resilient attitude, which refuses to let anything overwhelm them, stems from a lifetime's work in recovery. I admire their courage and applaud their willingness to share their experience and open their hearts in this touching book. -- Adele C. Smithers-Fornaci, president, Christopher D. Smithers Foundation

Smithers Foundation Product Description If you could ask Darryl Strawberry one question, what would it be? Would you ask him about baseball? Substance abuse? The role of faith and prayer in his life? Family? Cancer? Fear? Failure? Courage?? Tough to decide? Plough makes it easy. We asked Darryl all the questions we could think of, and he gave us answers - simple, honest, and hard-hitting. But we didn't stop there: we asked his wife, Charisse, to share her views as well. Think of this book as a conversation: a discourse between two people who've lived their entire shared lives in the spotlight, yet remain essentially 'ordinary' at heart. Whether you're captivated by baseball or not, you'll find yourself responding to the forthright nature of this book, which deals less with baseball than it does with issues such as battling cancer, addictions, and depression.
