This book is a personal testimony of growing up in an alcoholic family and its a short book that is very easy to read. The writer is very down to earth and shares her struggles growing up Catholic and with alcoholic parents. She shares her journey through that experience and that of finding her religious footing as well. I recommend this book to anyone living in an alcoholic family and esp. to Catholics who might have this issue in their families too.Good book. Not a fantastic one but not hard to read and not too long. I give this book a solid 3.
