Author Harmony Rose has been married to an alcoholic for nearly 12 years. In her new memoir, “Married Under The Influence” (published by Archway Publishing), she reaches out to others in similar situations and shares true stories of love, hope, strength and wisdom.

“I am the wife of an alcoholic but I am also so much more than that,” Rose writes. “I am a mother, step-mother, daughter, sister, cousin, friend and animal rescuer. I have come to realize that my story is not in any way unique. I am one of millions of people in the world that have been affected in one way or another by alcoholism.”

Taken from the pages of the journals she kept throughout the years, “Married Under The Influence” gives an open, honest account of the shame, blame, loneliness and abandonment she felt, although things weren’t always that way – in the beginning, Rose was enamored with her future husband, and because he had a job, a home and didn’t get falling-down drunk every night, it didn’t occur to her right away that he was an alcoholic.

As their relationship progressed, Rose began to notice that her now-husband’s drinking was taking a toll. She takes readers through the years in this account that shows just how innocuous alcoholism can be and how easy it can be for someone else to feel responsible for an alcoholic’s actions.

Interspersed with interviews with other wives married to alcoholics, an adult son of an alcoholic and several recovering alcoholics themselves, “Married Under The Influence” is filled with touching, compelling stories of strength, love and hope.
