Hope Street is the inspirational story of one woman's frightening journey of co-addiction that eventually led her to discover the courage and inner strength to overcome great adversity.. It was only after she exhausts every outlet that she finally learned to let go and allow the healing process to begin. But when he walked toward her on the night of their first date, Amanda's reluctance slipped away. Although she had the resources and knowledge to obtain help, Amanda discloses how she still felt alone, frightened, and mentally battered. As she became lost in his dimpled smile and green eyes, Amanda could have never known that three years later she would embark on a dark, long path lined with addiction, lies, and fraud. As she describes living with an addict, Amanda reveals how she slowly began to uncover the truth about the father of her child-a man who defrauded clients and close family members out of millions. In her inspirational memoir, Amanda shares an intense glimpse into her twelve-year relationship with a high functioning addict and con artist who manipulated and controlled every situation to provide for his own twisted needs.

Painfully True G Those who know, know. Many can just write their name in place of hers. True story that you would not believe unless you experienced it yourself.. Amazon Customer said Highly Recommend - Great book!!. I could not believe how amazing this book was. I personally am going through the same situation and as I read page by page I felt I was living a parallel life with the author! When things got foggy for me in my own life, seeing that someone else went through the same situation helped me through. I had two other people close to me also read this book to help them understand better what I was going through. I am actually looking forward to reading this again. The book shows true strength and courage to pull yourself out of a tough situation and I praise the author for sharing her story! Anyone going through a simil. Olive Oil said Inspirational and life affirming!!. WOW! I literally finished reading this book in one day because I had to see how Amanda made it through. Courageous story of one woman's battle to survive unthinkable horrors. You truly never know what a person is really capable of until you experience it firsthand. So glad you chose to share your story with the world Amanda! Hopefully this story will help someone in a similar situation.
From the Back Cover It's the good moments that addicts show us--because they're not all bad--that keep us hanging on long after we should say good-bye.I also was angry because even though Jim is no longer Jim, before this started he had to make a choice, and he chose lies and drugs over his wife and daughter. I would have gone to hell and back for him if only he would have been honest with me. He never was. He really never was.
