Peace and Truth
'Anyone who has lived with drug addicts and alcoholics knows how elusive hope is....This is the sort of story that could be labelled "unbelievable", except that it happens to be true! It's told honestly, with helpful angles from those whose lives interacted with May, and with an ever-present sympathy and understanding for all. Read it; study it in your churches to see what you can do; and give it to anyone who needs hope.'
