When faced with adversity and despair, where do you turn for solace? Do you surrender and abandon your ideals, or do you upend your life for the better?
After losing her job and husband to an affair and confronting insensitive parents, Vicky Lanzone prepared an elaborate escape plan. But an encounter with Jamie Blaine, a psychiatric crisis specialist, motivated her to transform her life drastically. With his help, Vicky wrote an introspective, authentic memoir about finding hope in desperation. She recognized that transparency and truthfulness are pivotal in self-discovery and optimism.
