In this book Leilani Faber shares her story as a recovering drug addict. Leilani gives hope to other recovering addicts and their families while showing a realistic image of what recovery and the future look like.
One of the things I loved about this book was its focus on the recovery after getting clean. It didn’t delve into the dark world of addiction or the withdrawal process like many books about addiction often do. This book doesn’t say it’s going to be easy, in fact it shows that it won’t be. With Leilani facing legal problems, custody issues and many knock backs because of her history, while trying to rebuild her life.
This honest account of recovery is well written and optimistic. As you follow Leilani’s journey through her highs and lows the main feeling you take away from this book is hope. Hope for a better future, hope for redemption and hope that her story may help others that find themselves dealing with addiction.
As most people these days know someone dealing with addiction this book is a wonderful read for everyone.
