This was a very heartful story about drug addiction. Anyone that has ever had any experience with this should definitely read this book. It tells the mother and other family members experience going through this problem with the drug addicted person. Like any major problem in our lives we must have faith in God to get through it. That is the only way! It was a very, very emotional story with much spirituality. Melody Carlson is a wonderful author and she has really outdone herself with this personal story.
