Amazing book for anyone looking to be inspired by the courage and continued dedication of the human spirit. The author writes this book in a way that makes you feel like you are right there with her every step of the way, through her up and her many downs, but all along she never gives up. Having that unbinding hope, love and belief in someone else is remarkable and a true role model for the rest of us to strive to be!

Married Under the Influence is the true story of a wife of an alcoholic. This is truly an exceptional reading experience. The narrative is concise, direct and honest, and moves along quickly. The author takes us on a journey that spans the depths of addiction and the fallout. For those who have never experienced the ravages of alcoholism first hand, this story will help open your eyes and understand this widespread societal disease. And for those may be going through it now, this story will give courage and strength. An inspiring and fascinating read well worth the time.

4.5 stars This is the first book that I’ve read on this subject, even though I am a big fan of memoirs and the whole “personal struggle” element. What spoke to me most about this book was just the face that despite everything else, at the heart of it this is a love story…one that is tested over and over, and we really feel the struggle the author (and her husband/family) goes through. So many ups and downs we feel like we are on a roller coaster. I especially enjoyed the “interview’ at the end, along with the final love letter. A great addition to the self-help genre, or for anyone who just wants an inspirational story.

this was an amazing, poignant, and emotional memoir. “Married Under The Influence” by Harmony Rose is candid reveal of the author’s experience with being married to an alcoholic. Her writing style pulls you right in from the start, and we see the ‘bigger picture’ of what alcoholism did to her and her family. For the most part I really enjoyed reading of their experiences, but I found the formatting (block style) and the excessive use of italics to be a bit wearisome after awhile. But overall a great read with the message that no matter how bleak or depressing things may be, there is always hope. A recommended read.

Married Under the Influence by Harmony Rose is a touching, intimate, in-depth look at the trials and tribulations her family went through due to her husband’s alcoholism. What I enjoyed most about this book was that even though it talked of a sad, difficult subject and of struggles and heartache, it is also a story of hope and love and perseverance. A great support book that is both encouraging and inspiring. Well written, like a friend is talking to you, and easy to get lost in. A must read for anyone who has dealt with alcoholism or alcoholics in their life.

This is such a beautiful love story....Although there is so much heartache the strength and courage in this woman and the devoted unconditional love she has for her husband is beyond inspiring! This will touch anyone whether addiction is in your life or not. This woman paves the path as to what holding on to hope and faith is all about. I cannot wait to read her second book (hoping she is writing another one) This is very eye opening to see what someone on the other side of alcoholism goes through. I can't say enough about it just absolutely amazing!!! Every person should get this book it may just change your life! You will not be able to put it down!
