Nineteen-year-old Amanda Andruzzi had never forged a strong connection with any man before she met twenty-three-year-old Jim. But when he walked toward her on the night of their first date, Amanda's reluctance slipped away. As she became lost in his dimpled smile and green eyes, Amanda could have never known that three years later she would embark on a dark, long path lined with addiction, lies, and fraud.
In her inspirational memoir, Amanda shares an intense glimpse into her twelve-year relationship with a high functioning addict and con artist who manipulated and controlled every situation to provide for his own twisted needs. As she describes living with an addict, Amanda reveals how she slowly began to uncover the truth about the father of her child-a man who defrauded clients and close family members out of millions. Although she had the resources and knowledge to obtain help, Amanda discloses how she still felt alone, frightened, and mentally battered. It was only after she exhausts every outlet that she finally learned to let go and allow the healing process to begin.
Hope Street is the inspirational story of one woman's frightening journey of co-addiction that eventually led her to discover the courage and inner strength to overcome great adversity.

Inspirational, hopeful and compelling!! I saw you at a conference recently and you inspired me to make some changes in my life. With such a sad beginning I didn't expect the outcome.
I enjoyed this book. I read during a time in my life which was somewhat identical to my own at the time. Although my husband is addicted to alcohol. I still felt a lot of her pain and could relate to so much. I'm slowly getting my life e back together as I write this review. I hope and pray for the pain and sadness to come to an end.
Wow, I just finished reading this book and I could not put it down. Not only is the writing real, from a real person who dealt with addiction but the story is accurate and true to form. This is a must read for anyone who loves an addict. You won't believe it until you read her story how someone could literally be living the same story as your own.
You are a pillar of strength and an angel in my life. Thank you for writing this. I keep it with me to remind me and to give me strength to let go.
