"poignant and dramatic...impossible to read this book without being swept up in the emotional turmoil that battered the Fuller family for so many years...Fuller fights through the grief to present a story of love, remembrance, and family courage...true power." - Clarion Foreword Review
***** Five stars
"In his affecting memoir, Fuller...brings a new, engaging dimension to the familiar story of addiction... Fuller's frank self-awareness sets this book apart from similar memoirs; he never succumbs to moralizing or easy answers." - Kirkus Review
