This has got to be the most intense, heartbreaking, but at the same time, the most uplifting book I have read in a long time.
Sherry Johnson is a beautiful young woman who was abandoned, as a baby, by her mother. She was left in the 'care' of her cold and bitter aunt and an abusive uncle. This would prove to have a profound effect on her as a young girl. She was desperate to find love and acceptance, and not finding it at home, she searched elsewhere for it, but this led to a destructive cycle of alcohol and sex.
As her life spun out of control, and she was forced to leave her home town, Sherry made her way to New York to try and find her mother's childhood friend, hoping that she would be able to help her to find her mother. On the way to New York, she had car trouble and met Paul, who helped her. They fell in love, but it wasn't long before Sherry destroyed the relationship by acting out on her addiction. She was soon on her own again, and back on the road - on her way to New York.
In New York, she found her mother's friend who encouraged her to join a support group for sex addicts. The rest of the story details Sherry's day-to-day struggle, the people she meets, her disappointments and failures as well as her successes and her amazing triumphs.
This book was truly intense. I often found myself saying 'noooooo Sherry, please don't do that; don't take that drink; don't leave the house;'. Every step she took, I took with her. My heart broke for her. I cried for her. I applauded her.
I highly recommend this book. It is a book about a woman's struggle with sex addiction, but it is in no way an erotica novel. It is well written, and not once did I feel even remotely uncomfortable. I would love to see this book in every bookshop around the world.
Get yourself a copy of this book, you will not regret it, it is a really great story
After being abandoned by her mother, left to live with her uncaring aunt and abuser uncle , Sherry Johnson starts searching for love. That search got her kicked out of college and cost her many good relationships.
Eventually Sherry moves to New York City and joins a support group. With the help of this group her confidence grows, she makes friends who like her for who she is and fights her addictions. She even starts playing soccer again.
I saw the cover to this novel and knew that I had to read this. Sex addiction is not something I am familiar with, but I truly enjoyed the story. Once I started reading I could not stop. It was very difficult not to immediately feel sorry for the life Sherry was dealt. Sherry had a rough childhood and was given no love, ever, in her life.
This is not a story of sex, actually there was very little actual sex in the story. This is a story of a girl living through her addiction of her strength and her ability to find herself and move past her history. This book opened my eyes to the struggles an addict goes through and how very important the support they receive is to their sobriety. This is a true 5 star novel.
Simply stated, this is brilliant!
As `Falling In Love' is based on a true story I liked how we see the process of the writer interviewing the person whose life experience this belongs to. Stephen Bradlee's writing style captures the story beautifully and you feel every emotion that "Sherry" is experiencing, both the good and the bad.
Sherry, is struggling with her addiction and is just trying to survive each day and try to overcome it. I found myself cheering her on when things were going well and my heart broke for her when she would step back into those bad habits she's trying to avoid. She is a smart girl with a terrible past and you really hope that she can achieve the future she dreams of.
If you like books that are based on true stories then you need to check this out. If you like emotionally charged reads then definitely check this out. It is not an easy read by any means but it is definitely a fascinating one.
The author gives a first person account of what it's like. This was a well written account based on a true story. Sex addiction probably goes undiagnosed for many people. If anyone suffers from sex addiction, this is a wonderful book to read that lets you know that there are others out there and there is help. The bravery of this woman to come forward is nothing less than commendable. I applaud her outpouring of emotions as she describes the people in her life and how her addiction has destroyed her relationship(s) with them.
Stephen Bradlee is a pen name for a Hollywood film executive. He has ghostwritten celebrity autobiographies and has worked primarily as a script doctor. He is married and lives with his wife, their daughter and their dog.
BLURB: Sherry Johnson is a young, beautiful, bright and athletic girl. She has everything going for her, except one thing.
She is addicted to love. Her life is a vicious circle of nightly trysts and morning regrets. Her addiction got her kicked out of college, cost her the love of her life and has left her in complete despair.
But still Sherry keeps falling in love. And falling. And falling.
Finally, as Sherry struggles to pull herself up from a bottomless abyss. she realizes that she will have to learn to love the one person she has loathed for most of her life. Herself.
Based on the True Story of a Young Woman's Battle with Sexual Addiction.
"I have a great story for you."
This is a sucker line for every writer. Almost everyone thinks that their life would make a great story but few of us live lives that are the stuff of great drama, and even less have material or its counterpart, great comedy. Still writers listen, at least for a few lines, because we are always looking for a great story.
The caller was Candice an old friend who's own life story actually was worth telling. A century ago, her family was among America's richest but alcoholism had wracked every generation, dissipating the wealth until now it was nearly gone. I had known her through years of pristine sobriety ad years of hard drinking and nothing in between. Now, here she was, sober and saying she had a great story.
"What is it?" I asked curtly.Read more ›
