Synopsis: How can teenagers be married successfully when they have been raised in madness and dysfunction? Unfortunately Melissa and Jack tried to have a normal family without a clue how to achieve it.
Both coming from addiction and abuse, they carried on the family tradition. They brought three children into the union, without the skills to parent or to have a healthy marriage. Melissa, out of desperation, turned to support through counseling and 12-step programs, disrupting the fragile mobile of their family. When one person changes, the other one will change too, or leave the relationship.
Melissa will be forced to deal with estrangement, abandonment and divorce. Will Melissa find joy and happiness with someone who loves her in a healthy way? What will happen to her relationships with her unhealthy family after turning her life over to God? What happens to relationships when one person decides to change the family dynamics and reach out for recovery?
From the Author: I have written this novel based on the lives of those who are recovering from addiction. I am a recovering person and many of the people in my life that I love the most are also in recovery. It can be a roller coaster ride that changes the dynamics of dysfunctional families. The children and parents as well as other family members and friends all are effected by addiction and recovery from addiction. I have borrowed from my own life as well as from friends. Most of us that have addiction issues have come from addiction and dysfunction and as a result of that we do not learn how to be the best parents, partners or functioning adults. We do not learn how to deal with life on life's terms. It is a novel though and not a memoir. I will add that I learned a lot about how to be a much better parent and wife as the result of self help programs and counseling. Because of that I am passionate about sharing my experience, strength and hope with others. I thank God every day for how they have all helped me and saved my life and my soul.
