I thought it had already occurred and I was free of it - like having the measels and not having to worry about getting them again because you have already had them.

“This book is about more than addiction and recovery. It is also about the redemption and forgiveness that can lead to a reclaiming of self,
of family, from a monster that has hurt so many.”
