Fallen Angel is the uplifting memoir of a loving mother whose troubled son experiences a thirteen-year battle with drug addiction, destructive relationships, and homelessness.
Nine years after they married, Lucinda Esperanza and her husband lovingly welcomed their first child Jason into their family. At first, he appeared to be just a hyperactive and stubborn child, but soon after Jason turned thirteen, the family began to experience events beyond their control. Jason's addiction to crystal methamphetamine, heroine, and ecstasy propelled him on a path of self-destruction that included skipping school, running away, living on the streets, and a complete disregard for authority. Together, these three family members learn to walk arm-in-arm through a journey of perseverance, unconditional love, and seemingly endless hurdles with the shared ultimate goal of saving Jason's life and guiding him to use his potential in a positive way.
In due course, the smart, observant and street-wise Jason finds the strength to stop the cycle of drug abuse and cleans up his life. Anyone who has lived with or loved someone with an addiction will relate to this mother's retrospective glance back at the challenges she faced as the mother of a son who lost his way.
