Reminiscent of the beloved novels by Mary Kubica and Jodi Picoult comes a chilling portrayal of a son’s addiction and its harrowing effects on both him and his mother from New York Times best-selling author Courtney Cole.
There comes a time when offering your life for your child’s doesn’t work, when you realize that it’ll never be enough.
The cold needle in his warm vein was a welcome comfort to my son at first. But then it became the monster that kept us apart.
Heroin lied, and my son believed. It took him to a world where the last year didn’t happen, to a place where his father was still alive. What Beck didn’t understand was that it couldn’t bring his father back from the dead. It couldn’t take away his pain, not permanently.
You think it can’t happen to you, that your kids, your family, will never be in this situation.
I thought that too. But you’re wrong.
Step into our world, and see for yourself.
Watch my golden boy become a slave to this raging epidemic. Watch me try and save him.
Drug addiction comes with a price.
Trust me, you’re not equipped to pay it.
Don’t miss this heartwrenching, evocative, yet hopeful novel – it will leave you forever changed.
LOUISA’S 5 BLUSH REVIEW
Wow is the first thought to come to my head while listening to this audible. Courtney Cole has opened her heart, her soul, and life in this story.
It’s sad to know that so many people are being affected by the opioid epidemic. I may not have a son or daughter who has battled addiction but I have friends who have watched as their children slowly slipped into this nightmare. I have been there watching them slowly die themselves not knowing if their children would live or die.
Listening to this book brought their lives to life for me, the nightmare in which they lived.
The narrators helped make this audible come to life itself. Their heartfelt words, the sadness, and smiles in their voices made this book come to life…the good and the bad. This book, this audible, this story is something all should listen to, it’s a look into a world that many are leading and gives you a different perspective to this epidemic.
