About the Book

While they were still on their honeymoon, tragedy struck. After her husband's stroke, she was married to a different man. Now solely responsible, she coped until her husband's depression turned suicidal and addiction complicated his disabilities. The Grace that saved her came through a blending of ancient spiritual tradition with the contemporary wisdom of codependent recovery. Now she had the tools and support to make conscious choices.

This true story explores the potentially dangerous shadow issues that caregivers often face: personality change--inverted relationship dynamics--post-traumatic stress--and the caregiver's frailties. The tension builds in riveting twists as she learns to distinguish between care giving and enabling, between sacrifice and martyrdom ­ to make her way to healing and renewal.
