A riveting and passionate account of the scourge of alcoholism and mental illness on families, Nelly takes readers on a journey of struggle and faith as they explore the honest analysis of one woman's battle against these formidable foes. Holding little, if anything, back from her readers, the author shares tales and anecdotes from her childhood, her college days, and her life as a wife and mother. Sexual encounters, drug and alcohol use, and family dysfunction are not hidden in this memoir, but neither are they glorified. The reader rejoices as Nelly graduates from rehab and rebuilds her life, but they also grieve the circumstances surrounding those family members who do not emerge victorious over their demons. Challenging and emotional, refreshing and inspiring--Nelly unveils the ugly truth of mental illness, as well as the strength and power of the human spirit. It is a story that will challenge and inspire readers to face and defeat their own demons and support and encourage family and friends who battle mental illness every day.
