Broken Promises; Mended Dreams, by Richard Meryman and The Good House, by Ann Leary are two books I've been reading -- addiction books - recovery books. I read the Meryman book a while ago - and I'm reading the Leary book now.
I'm looking forward to sharing The Good House with you when I finish. And then, after reveiwing the other one, or re-reading it, sharing that one.
In fact, I plan to share a number of addiction and recovery books with you during the months ahead.
When I first got into recovery, there was a group of people in my home group who were reading books like this -so I bought the books, but I was working full time, was doing a lot of church work, had chuldren - you know - a very full plate, so I didn't have time to read most of these gems.
Reading them now - and seeing myself - is good. If you are a reader, you may want to do the same.
I must share that I had some difficulty getting into The Good House, but when Anne Bogel, of the on-line book group, Modern Mrs. Darcy, recommended it, well..... there ya go - I knew I needed to keep reading. And, yes, it is becoming quite interesting.
