5.0 out of 5 stars
This book was so riveting, so honest and raw. I couldn't put it down. I cried because I could feel her pain through her writing. In reading this memoir, I could imagine Susan Burton's childhood, the music of that era, the roughness of her brothers, her pain that caused her descent into addiction - then on to overcoming her addiction to becoming the voice and help for hundreds of women and children affected by drugs and societal inflictions of all the problems - I admire her SO much. This book is a must-read!

I am so thrilled with this book. Susan Burton's story about her childhood, the death of her son, her descent into addiction, and her emergence as one of the country's leading voices for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people is inspirational, painful, and enlightening. It's a must-read for anyone concerned about women, prisons, poverty, addiction, and sexual abuse -- issues that intersected for the author and intersect for many women who end up in America's jails and prisons.
