The Message in the Bottle helps those who feel alone in their struggle with the drinker in their life find peace and hope. Is the drinker in your life making you crazy? Do you find that your thoughts and free time are consumed by ideas and plans to fix things so they won’t want to drink? Do you feel like you can’t talk with anyone about what’s really going on, because they won’t get it or because you can’t believe the situation you’re in?

Stephanie McAuliffe shares her journey of growing up in a family where cocktails started by 5:00 p.m. She reveals her marriages to two alcoholics, and shows how she navigated life being surrounded by alcohol and alcoholics—and broke an unhealthy family cycle that went back at least four generations. Full of stories of survival, The Message in the Bottle is packed with support to help children and spouses of alcoholics find peace amidst the chaos.
