In this compelling and personal dual memoir, a daughter shares her desire to overcome her addiction, while a mother shares her heartbreak of losing a child. After 4 years of watching her daughter struggle with alcohol abuse, Patricia B., recovering alcoholic, began to record the events that ultimately led to every parent’s nightmare. Suddenly and tragically, Patricia lost her 28 year old daughter to stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver due to alcohol abuse. Turning tragedy into action, Patricia brought Courtney’s dream of helping other addicts into a reality by creating the now successful nonprofit Purse-Impressions.
