#BookReview: The Art of Losing It: A Memoir by Rosemary Keevil






Synopsis: When her brother dies of AIDS and her husband dies of cancer in the same year, Rosemary is left on her own with two young daughters and antsy addiction demons dancing in her head. This is the nucleus of The Art of Losing It: a young mother jerking from emergency to emergency as the men in her life drop dead around her; a high-functioning radio show host waging war with her addictions while trying to raise her two little girls who just lost their daddy; and finally, a stint in rehab and sobriety that ushers in a fresh brand of chaos instead of the tranquility her family so desperately needs.

Heartrending but ultimately hopeful, The Art of Losing It is the story of a struggling mother who finds her way―slowly, painfully―from one side of grief and addiction to the other.

Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This one was a very interesting memoir.  I felt so much for Rosemary and what he had gone through.  I haven't been in her shoes per say but I have been in a situation where it looked like the world was crashing around you. And there was just no way out.  This is the book for all struggling people.  I think that this tale would help them.
