TORONTO (PRWEB) April 01, 2020
Based on a true story of addiction, love, betrayal, and forgiveness, Alison Pearce’s debut novel “Fractured” (published by Archway Publishing), follows a woman navigating a journey through her personal hell, and back.
In this fictionalized memoir, Alison has been sober for seven years; she seems to be happily married, and is in love with her husband. Then, a series of dramatic events reveal stunning secrets that take her spiraling back into the depths of addiction. When her husband’s drinking exposes his infidelity, Alison’s world crumbles.
“One in five adults in North America struggle with addiction and mental illness. By the age of 40, half of all adults have had some type of mental health issue,” Pearce says. “I want all my readers to understand what it’s like to suffer with mental illness and addiction. Of course, if the reader is dealing with similar issues, I believe that they will relate to my story, and find hope.”
“Fractured” is available online on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Fractured-Alison-Pearce/dp/1480883689.
