Book Description

Oct. 11 2010
"" is a compelling, impactful story about hope and love that builds brick by brick from the bottom up, and then screams victory from the roof-top. The story is a touching, honest, and insightful account of the author's rollercoaster ride through life, beginning with her 1958 Baltimore birth, and continuing through age fifty. After twenty-two years of an angst ridden journey fraught with confusion, depression, and peril, the author clung to the fantasy that a chivalrous white knight would one day rescue her. To her great surprise that's exactly what happened...or so she thought. At first she idealized the romance, but before she knew it she found herself tragically enmeshed in the tangled web of codependency. Prompted by her unbearable anguish and desperate thirst for serenity, the author began searching for answers. Determined to find deeper meaning and understanding, she poured herself into reshaping her life. She healed the wounds of her past, transformed her life, and ultimately found the happiness she had always longed for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Memoir is a Must! Nov. 13 2010
By Nora - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't recommend this book enough! draws you in from the first paragraph and you absolutely cannot put it down. I read it in two days! I've read many stories of adversity, but is truly a stand-out book. This remarkable Baltimore based memoir spans fifty years of the author's life. Ms Fine is a gifted writer; it's hard to believe that is her debut book. Her characters are described in such vivid detail they come alive, jump off the page, and nestle into the reader's heart. Although Ms. Fine bears her soul, she shows great sensitivity when sharing the painful memories of her life. There is a lot of humor in the book too.

The story discusses such topics as child abuse, sexual abuse, rape, addiction codependency;the author tells how she overcame it all. The book has an emotional surprise ending that will make you cheer for the heroine. It brings the entire story together.

By marzkitty - Published on
Randi Fine's candid story of the difficulties in her young life shows that there is hope for anyone to rise above the pain and emerge a whole and complete person. She is engaging and writes in a captivating style that compels the reader to turn the page. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would highly recommend to anyone who has met adversity in their lives. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courage Trumps Codependency Jan. 29 2011
By Barbara Writes - Published on
Ms. Fine expertly takes the reader into a world of childhood angst, molestation, rape, and codependency with a drug addict. While all serious subjects, she does not weigh the reader down with a "woe is me" attitude. Rather, she shows us that we do not have to be defined by bad events in our lives and that, with hope and courage, we can rise above the pain and find happiness again.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not one I'd recommend. Oct. 13 2014
By Marylynn Neese - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't like the book. It was obviously written by a narcissistic co-dependent woman and the whole reading is a "poor me" kind of thing written by a spoiled upper middle class kid - even though she is over thirty at the time of writing. There's a million women raped in this country and at least that many married to addicts. The book makes women look really over emotional and self limiting. We all have more brains and more power than this. I found the book depressing and her rather stupid. It's not worth the money and now she's writing self help books? Please. No - I wouldn't recommend it.
