Reviews

"In painful, haunting vignettes, James interweaves her life with his [her son's life], telling their story from the anguished, solitary helplessness of self-doubt--and then, ultimately, the resplendent relief of joy. The numbers regarding heroin abuse are staggering. They transcend all demographics--race, gender, economic status. James transforms the senseless horror of the statistic into a single soul, the son she calls 'Sweetboy.'"--Anne Kennedy, Christianity Today 01/06/2020 CT Five Star Review
