Surviving an Alcoholic Marriage and Living to Tell About It is a true story. Susan Merrifield details her long, difficult relationship with an alcohol-abusing husband. Through her journey, Merrifield provides advice to others who might be in a similar situation, hoping they will learn from her experience.
This book does not necessarily give us a happy ending or a complete storyline that we so often crave. Instead, Merrifield follows a winding path that refuses to flirt with magical realism. As we learn Merrifield’s personality, and the obstacles that stood in her way, we come to respect the everyday triumphs that defined her long, difficult relationship with a man controlled by the bottle.
