"A House Interrupted, a story of extreme betrayal, moves beyond that to become a story of profound healing. Maurita’s marriage captures the essence of true forgiveness and hope, reminding us that some things only appear broken beyond repair."
Melody Beattie, author of Codependent No More
"A House Interrupted courageously discusses, in frank detail, the day-to-day battle that recovery requires not just of the addict, but of those within the bonds of family and friendship. Maurita Corcoran provides an important new perspective in understanding a disease that society tries so hard to ignore."
