I have been married to an alcoholic 28 years. My deceased father was an alcoholic and now my 37 yr old son is an alcoholic. After reading numerous books over the years I finally found one that made sense. This book gives practical advice to the person living with an alcoholic. I thank God for the insight provided by Toby Rice Drews! I strongly recommend this book for everyone that has been or will be involved in the life of an alcoholic!

Indespensible Feb 22, 1998
Toby Rice Drews is in a class by herself. She is an absolute sanity saver and a restorer of health and equlibrium. I have been blessed with knowing Toby, and she is in person as she appears in all of her books--warm, gentle, loving, and a true giver. I have given her books to friends and family and they have found them indespensible. One slept at night with her Bible on the pillow next to her and Toby's books on top.
