ADDICTED TO LOVE is an intensely moving story about family secrets, love and loss. The story centers on a teenager growing up in the North Shore of Chicago during the turbulent 1970s. She is challenged to confront the effects of childhood trauma and a dysfunctional family as she tries to forge her identity among the conflicting messages of Women’s Liberation and latent fifties idealism provided by a Catholic upbringing. Thoughtfully written, and emotionally complex, Addicted to Love will appeal to readers who seek a gripping story of forgiveness and redemption.
