Australia (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Alcoholism is an addiction that debilitates a person’s health and wellbeing and may even harm the welfare of those around him. In Australia, alcohol consumption is a contributing factor to 30 per cent of road accidents, 16 per cent of child abuse cases and 12 per cent of suicides. In her collection of original poems, Rochelle Aspey takes readers beyond statistics and into her personal struggle to break free from the bondage of alcohol addiction. My Journey is a deeply moving poetic anthology that examines a subject that is not commonly discussed in the open.
My Journey encapsulates the author’s desperate struggle to find redemption, healing and herself in the midst of the devastation of alcohol addiction. With courage and honesty, she gives voice to the darkness that comes during times of weakness. More importantly, she remembers those rare moments of light that gave her hope and kept her alive. The uniqueness of Aspey’s poetry lies in the fact that it works simultaneously as a chronicle of her life and a triumphant testament of the human spirit.
A transformative visual and literary experience, My Journey will comfort, inspire and heal. It will resonate with the hearts and souls of readers, reminding them of the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.
This book will be featured at the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 9 – 13, 2013.
