Description:
This is not a partial glimpse of addiction - it is the whole story.

When you meet Jodee's younger brother Brett, you'll see that he was no amateur alcoholic. As he walked the thin line between life and death, she experienced gut-wrenching highs and lows, obsessively doing everything she could to get his life back on track; sacrificing her own young children, marriage career, and personal health.

Like the millions of people worldwide who love someone addicted to drugs or alcohol, Jodee believed she was doing all the right things. Witten with extreme candor, no shame, and in the hope of helping others, The Sun is Gone sheds a bright, beaming light on the often-disturbing realities of the progression of alcoholism and what goes on behind closed doors.

Review - 'The Sun is Gone is to remind oneself that no one is alone on this heart-wrenching journey. Jodee illuminates early childhood patterns that poison adult dynamics, and shows how much damage can be caused by mistaking enabling for caring.' -Kim Barthel, Occupational Therapist specializing in Mental Health and Trauma, Co-author of Conversations with a Rattlesnake with Theo Fleury.

Review #2 - 'A deeply intimate and moving story of trauma, loss, addiction, tragedy and the possibility of redemption.' -Dr. Gabor Mate M.D., Author, In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction
