This book was written to help all dependent people learn ways to follow a spiritual path, even if their dependencies might be one of those potentially less severe than alcoholism or drug addiction: such as workaholism, materialism, excessive anxiety, or relationship difficulties. To quote from the author: People these days talk seriously of addictions to television, the Internet, or to acquiring material possessions.

These are usually self involved occupations. Its as though humanity knows somehow that joy is their natural state, but they lack the ability to open enough to experience it. They are seeking comfort and joy in all the wrong places. This memoir tells the story of three generations afflicted with alcoholism and its effects on family and friends. It chronicles the authors growing up with an alcoholic mother in the middle of the twentieth century, and her own later development of the same illness despite her strong commitment to avoid this.

It describes the methods she has used to remain in recovery over twenty seven years, and includes information learned from her twenty plus years of working as an addictions counselor, and from her ongoing relationships with an alcoholic spouse and an emotionally disabled son. This book speaks to issues of import to much of humanity, such as abandonment, the need for safely and security in an insecure world, the need to give control back to a spiritual source, the need for forgiveness of self and others, and the primary need to find Spirit within and not without.

To quote again from Ms. Sherrys words: I no longerthink of God as dwelling in heaven, wherever that might be. As a child, heaven seemed to be a place above the sky. However, even though I now know more of the facts about our Universe, I still cant identify a place called heaven.
