One scene stands out, she has left her first husband, is a single mother caring for her family. Her friend notes how strong she is. Kathleen had not realized up to this point indeed how strong of a person she is. She overcomes, and were this Hollywood we would have our happy ending. This is a real life story though, and so Kathleen falls into a similar situation, and makes similar mistakes.
This is a must read for any child who has survived an alcoholic household, wives of alcoholics current or former; counselors, nurses and medical professionals, really anyone who has the potential to help abused women. Frankly the list could go on for pages. I imagine this book has saved at least one life, if not many. That at least one friend or family member of an abused woman urged her to read this book, and her eyes were torn open as she realized there is escape and there is hope.
I loved the author’s way of telling her story, especially showing her fun and sassy Italian roots. Reading her life story as a good Catholic girl, from her first dates as a student during the Vietnam era, right through nursing school, and her first and second disastrous marriage, was like watching a really good movie, something Bette Midler would act in. This memoir, though full-length, was fast-paced, and though not a fictional novel, the writing quality pleased me as much as a good novel would.
I highly recommend this non-fiction memoir to those who like a really good true story, that clips along with fresh-air honesty. The author was not perfect. She made some mistakes, but all in all, she’s the kind of woman you look up to. A woman you root for from page one. A woman who needs to learn to love herself, a lesson we all need to learn. As a Protestant Christian I also really appreciated the quiet strength of the author’s Catholic faith.
